The Chairman of the Kano Public Complaint and Anti-Corruption Commission, Muhyi Magaji Rimin Gado, has been arraigned and suspended by the Code of Conduct Tribunal, CCT, over charges of alleged abuse of office.

Muhyi was arraigned on alleged breach of the code of conduct for public officers, conflict of interest, abuse of office, false asset declaration, bribery and accepting gifts, among others.

The Tribunal granted the Complainant’s application directing the defendant to step aside as the Chairman of the Public Complaint and Anti-Corruption Commission of Kano State over the allegation of contravening the provisions of the Code of Conduct Bureau and Tribunal Act CAP C15 LFN 2004 pending the hearing and determination of the case against the Defendant/Respondent that is pending before this Tribunal.

The Tribunal also issued an order directing the Governor of Kano State, Abba Kabir Yusuf and the Secretary to the Government of Kano, Abdullahi Baffa Bichi, to take all necessary steps to appoint the most appropriate officer to take over as Acting Chairman of the Public Complaint and Anti-Corruption Commission pending the hearing and determination of the case against the Defendant/Respondent that is pending before this Tribunal.

However, a source said Gado will be appealing the ruling as there were already court orders restraining the arraignment, and processes of the Code of Conduct Bureau, the EFCC and others.

“We are appealing the ruling because there was already a substantive court order preventing the arrest, and prosecution by the CCT and EFCC”, the source added.
