The government of the Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje of Kano State has led the Nigerian Police to seal a chamber belonging to Nureini Jimoh, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN) who represented former governor, Senator Ibrahim Shekarau-led faction of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

 

According to the report, the chamber situated at No.16c Murtala Mohammed Way office, Kano was sealed on Wednesday by the Kano State Ministry of Land in conjunction with the police.

 

The lawyer confirmed the sealing of the building to Daily Nigerian, saying the officials locked out his workers and many other people in the building.

 

“As I speak to you, I am inside the building with many people trapped in. So we don’t know how to even go out,” he said.

 

Newsflash Nigeria had reported on Tuesday that the Federal High Court sitting in the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, had sacked the APC Executives loyal to the state governor, Abdullahi Ganduje.

 

Delivering a ruling on the reliefs sought by Senator Ibrahim Shekarau, Justice Hamza Muazu, granted all the reliefs sought.

The applicants led by Muntaka Bala Sulyman and others had joined issued with APC, Chairman APC extraordinary caretaker Committee and Governor of Yobe state, Mai Mala Buni, National Secretary of the party, John Akpanudoedehe, the Independent National Electoral Commission, among the nine defendants.
