N70b embezzlement: Shema defeats Masari in federal court of Appeal, Kaduna

The Court of Appeal sitting in Kaduna yesterday removed the chairman of the Katsina State Judicial Commission of Inquiry to investigate loss of funds and properties in 2016,  Justice Muhammad Suraj,  saying that the circumstance of his appointment to head the panel will not give an average person the satisfaction that he would be fair to the former governor of the state, Ibrahim Shema.

Judicial symbolIn a lead judgement read by Adefope Okojie, the appellate courtjustice held that given that the governor of Katsina State, Aminu Bello Masari had specifically requested for Justice Muhammad Suraj to chair the panel, there is a likelihood that he may be bias.

Her lead judgement which was concurred with by the other two justices in the panel, Ibrahim Shatta and Amina Augie ruled that the chairman of the panel be replaced while the panel be allowed to continue its investigation.
