A non-governmental organisation (NGO), Human and Environmental Development Agenda (HEDA) is seeking an order of mandamus against the Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN) in relation to the probe of a video which allegedly showed Kano state governor, Umar Ganduje receiving a bribe.

The NGO has therefore filed a suit to at the Federal High Court in Abuja to compel the CJN to probe the bribery allegation against the governor.

According to HEDA,  the suit was filed after a Kano State High Court halted Ganduje’s probe by the Kano State House of Assembly.



HEDA’s Chairman, Olanrewaju Suraju, in a statement on Thursday, said that the group is seeking an order of mandamus against the CJN in relation to the probe.

He said the case had already been assigned to a judge, who had fixed March 21 for hearing.
