Court Nullifies El-Rufai’s Revocation Of Durbar Hotel’s C of O


A Kaduna State High Court has nullified the revocation of Certificate of Occupancy (C of O) of Durbar Hotel by Governor Nasir El-Rufai.

In January 2020, the state government demolished the hotel, a property belonging to the family of the late Head of State General Sani Abacha and revoked the C of O while the case was still pending in Court.

Consequently, the Aba- cha family through their counsel, Dr. Reuben Atabo (SAN) dragged El-Rufai and three others to Kaduna State High Court presided over by Justice Hannatu Balogun for illegal demolition of the Hotel and revocation of the Certificate of Occupancy.
