Again, the leader of aggrieved members of All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kano, Alhaji Ahmadu Haruna Danzago has dragged the APC state Chairman , Alhaji Abdullahi Abbas and Secretary, Ibrahim Sarina before a Federal high court sitting in Kano.

In the fresh legal battle, Danzago, is seeking application for interlocutory injunction to restrain Abdullahi Abbas and Ibrahim Sarina from parading themselves as state APC Chairman and secretary.

Danzago’s fresh court action came few hours after the Supreme Court verdict that dismissed the G7 appeal against the Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje’s supported APC leadership in Kano.

While the legal tussle that terminated on Friday at the supreme court bordered on ward and local government congresses of the party, the new case argued on the competence of the Chairman and secretary to remain in office.
