The lawyer who was reported to have played a vital role in the victory of Malam Ibrahim Shekarau faction of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kano State, Mr Nureini Jimoh, was locked up in his chamber by the government officials hours ago.
Reports have it that the Federal High Court in Abuja dissolved the excos of Governor Abdullahi Ganduje’s APC faction, taking that of Shekarau.
On Wednesday, December 1, 2021, police and officials of the Kano State government stormed Jimoh’s chamber at 16c Murtala Mohammed Way, Kano.
The officials sealed off the building while Mr Jimoh and his staff were inside the building, making it a thing of surprise to many.
However, the building was later unsealed after outrage from the Kano branch of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) and media reports.
Hassan Idris, the team leader, has disclosed that they were instructed by the Permanent Secretary from the ministry to unlock the premises.
Speaking at the scene, the Kano Police Spokesman, Abdullahi Haruna Kiyawa, said he was there to confirm the involvement of police as being reported by the media.
