“Delivering the ruling, the Chairman CCT, Justice Danladi Umar, established that the Tribunal has the competence and jurisdiction to hear the case.”

“He (Umar) explained that Muhuyi Magaji cannot continue to discharge the duties and responsibilities of his office while facing trial, to avoid any interference with the case.
“Hence the suspension, this is pending the conclusion of the trial,” Kato said.

The case has been adjourned to the 7th and 8th May 2024 for hearing.
