This came on a day Arewa Consultative Forum, ACF, called on the Emir and Kano State government to respect the decisions taken by the Northern Governors Forum to resolve the crisis between them.
Speaker of the 40-man Assembly, Kabiru Alhassan Rurum, who presided over the sitting, constituted the panel following a point of order by a member representing Nasarawa constituency, Mr Ibrahim Ahmad Gama.
The lawmakers alleged that Sanusi had been spreading false information on the trip of Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje to China, recently.
