Former Kano State Governor and New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) 2023 Presidential Candidate, Engineer Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, has filed a lawsuit at the Kano State High Court, to stop the Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC) from arresting him.

The court was presided over by Justice Yusuf Ubale.

A reliable source revealed that Kwankwaso is being investigated for alleged N2.5bn pension fraud and misappropriation of another 2.5bn campaign funds.
