Ignoring Court order, soldiers guard Bayero’s palace

Soldiers at Nasarawa palace in Kano State on Tuesday, May 28, 2024

Despite an order of a High Court in Kano State asking Aminu Ado Bayero to stop parading himself as the Emir of Kano, the deposed emir remains at the Nassarawa residence of the emir heavily guarded by the police and the military.

Channels TV correspondent, who was at the mini palace on Tuesday, observed the presence of stern-looking armed soldiers and policemen around the mini palace.

The court presided over by Justice Amina Adamu Aliyu on Monday had directed the police to evict him from the mini palace at the state road.

This legal tussle followed a Federal High Court ruling last Thursday which restrained the reinstatement of Muhammadu Sanusi II as the Emir of Kano and suspended the law establishing the dissolved five emirates in the state. The Kano State Police Command had vowed to enforce the court order restraining the state government from dissolving five newly created Emirates in the state.

However, in the fresh court order by Justice Aliyu the other traditional rulers in the dissolved emirates were also restrained from parading themselves as emirs. Nasiru Ado Bayero, Ibrahim Abubakar II, Kabiru Muhammad Inuwa, and Aliyu Ibrahim Gaya were restrained from parading themselves as emirs of Bichi, Gaya, Rano, and Karaye respectively.

Justice Aliyu emphasised the importance of maintaining the rule of law, stating that the court will ensure that its orders are respected and upheld until the substantive motion is heard.

The drama in the Kano Emirate tussle continued as both the deposed emir and the reinstated one received district heads in separate palaces on Monday.

Last week Friday, Governor Abba Yusuf signed a law dissolving the additional emirates created by the previous administration of Abdullahi Ganduje and reinstated Muhammadu Sanusi II as the emir.
