Dollar Video: Falana Leads Counsels Against Ganduje – Kano Anti-graft Commission
The Kano Public Complaint and Anti-Corruption Commission has engaged the services of human rights lawyer, Mr Femi Falana (SAN) as its lead counsel in the alleged dollar video, involving the immediate-past Governor of the state, Dr Abdullahi Umar Ganduje.
However, a reliable source hinted that Chief Falana flew into Kano on Thursday and collected a comprehensive brief on the case.
The case is already before a Federal High Court sitting in Kano.
The Commission’s counsel, Usman Fari dropped the hint while speaking with newsmen shortly after Friday’s court sitting presided over by Justice A. M. Liman.
Fari who insisted that the commission is ready for the court case noted that at the next adjourned date, the learned senior counsel, Falana will lead the team of lawyers.
According to him, “The commission has engaged the learned senior counsel, Femi Falana, SAN to lead us in the matter.
“So by the next adjourned date, 25th July, 2023, the Senior Advocate will lead the lawyers on behalf of the 6th respondent.
“We are ever ready for the matter,” Fari maintained.
Earlier, when the matter was called, the counsel to the former governor, Bar. B. Hemba informed the court that he needed to respond to court processes served on them by the respondent hence the inability of the court to proceed with the hearing.
The presiding Judge, Justice A. M. Liman however adjourned the matter till 25th July, 2023 for hearing.
