The order followed a suit filed by one Muhammad Zubair for himself and the national coordinator of Lawyers for Sustainable Democratization of Nigeria.

The suit is against three defendants: the Kano state House of Assembly, Chairman of the investigative committee, Baffa Babba Dan-Agundi, and the Attorney General of the state and Commissioner for Justice, Mr. Ibrahim Muktar.
