CCT adjourns ruling in Kano anti-corruption boss’ motion against CCB


The Code of Conduct Tribunal, CCT, sitting in Abuja has adjourned ruling on a motion filed by Muhuyi Magaji, Chairman, Kano State Public Complaints and Anti-Corruption Commission, PCACC, challenging the competence of the Code of Conduct Bureau, CCB, to prosecute.

The ruling, which was earlier fixed for Friday by the three-member panel, headed by Justice Danladi Umar, was suspended by the tribunal.

The tribunal had on Wednesday, set the ruling for Friday, after Magaji’s counsel, Adeola Adedipe, SAN, and lawyer to the CCB, Musa Usman, presented their arguments and adopted their applications.

Adedipe informed the panel of his motion on notice dated against the charge number: CCT/KN/01/2023.

While moving the motion, Adeola drew the attention of the tribunal to their two prayers, which were predicated on six grounds.


He alleged that a High Court of Kano State presided by Justice Farouk Adamu had, on Aug. 28, 2023, restrained the CCB from interfering in the affairs or taking any step in connection with the functions, duties and affairs of his client until the matter is dispensed with.

He restated that in the Kano matter, CCB was the 2nd defendant and that the court directed parties to maintain status.
