Kano: Police release anti-corruption boss, Muhuyi Rimingado



The embattled former chairman of Kano State Public Complaints and Anti-Corruption Commission, PCACC, Muhuyi Rimingado has been released on bail by the police.

Mr Rimingado was quizzed Monday for several hours by detectives at the legal department of Kano Police Command for alleged forgery, following a petition by the Kano State House of Assembly.

The Kano State House of Assembly had petitioned the police over alleged forgery by Mr Rimingado of his medical report, after National Hospital remark that the records did not emanate from them.


While Mr Rimingado honoured the police invitation, the State House of Assembly a passed a resolution recommending his sack despite a court order stopping them from taking further action.

“Order of Interim Injunction is hereby granted to the Plaintiff/Applicant restraining the Defendants/Respondents from taking any step related to or in connection with this matter pending the hearing and determination of the Motion on Notice,” the court ordered.

Passing the resolution at today’s plenary, the House set up a six-man committee to investigate his tenure from 2015 to 2021, and recommended that he be arrested and prosecuted.

Recall that the Kano State House of Assembly had invited Mr Rimingado to appear before its ad-hoc committee investigating a petition against him on Wednesday July 14, 2021.


But Mr Rimingado, while citing health grounds and attaching medical records to boot, demanded a certified true copy of the petition the assembly received against him and requested for more time to appear.
