The order was granted by Justice A. M Liman in response to an ex parte application filed by Mr. B. Hemba, counsel to the applicant.



The case stems from the anti-graft agency’s invitation of the former governor regarding an alleged dollar video. The court order also extends the restraint to seven other respondents involved in the case. These include the Nigeria Police, Inspector-General of Police, Commissioner of Police Kano State, State Security Services, Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, Attorney General of the Federation, Attorney General of Kano State, and Kano State Public Complaint and Anti-Corruption Commission.
