Kano state Public Complaints and Anti-Corruption Commission has suspended its investigation into the misappropriation of alleged embezzlement of over N6bn in three years by Kano emirate council pending the outcome of the State House of Assembly’s panel reports against the Emir of Kano.

Three officials of the emirate council were expected to appear before the commission yesterday to answer some questions as a continuation of the ongoing investigation which the commission commenced last month.

The commission said it has suspended its investigation pending the outcome of the Assembly’s.

“It stated that section 16 of the commission’s law prevented them from investigating any matter that is before the State Assembly, Executive and or court of law.

Walin Kano, Alhaji Mahe Bashir Wali, said the emirate had not yet received any invitation letter from the State House of Assembly in respect of the probe, Daily Trust reports.

According to Walin Kano, “he only heard about the development on television, but did not receive any invitation letter from the house in that respect.

The probe is coming at a time when five northern governors – Aminu Waziri Tambuwal of Sokoto, Nasiru El-Rufa’i of Kaduna, Kashim Shettima of Borno, Aminu Masari of Katsina and Abubakar Sani Bello of Niger were said to have brokered a truce at a peace meeting in Kaduna penultimate Friday between Governor Ganduje and the Emir.
