Kano Court Issues Interim Injunction Against Former Emirs

Justice Amina Adamu Aliyu of the Kano State High Court has issued an interim injunction restraining Alhaji Aminu Ado Bayero and four other dethroned emirs from presenting themselves as the emirs of Kano, Bichi, Rano, Gaya, and Karaye.
This injunction will remain in effect until the motion on notice filed by the applicants is heard and determined.
The ruling followed an ex parte application submitted by Barrister Ibrahim Isa Wangida, counsel for the applicants, on May 27, 2024.
The court order states: “An order of interim injunction is hereby granted restraining the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th defendants from parading themselves as Emirs of Kano, Bichi, Gaya, Rano, and Karaye pending the hearing and determination of the motion on notice filed by the applicants.”
Additionally, the court directed the Commissioner of Police, Kano State, to take immediate control of the Emir of Kano’s palace and to evict Aminu Ado Bayero, the first defendant, from the premises until the motion on notice is resolved.
The applicants in the suit are the Kano State Attorney General, the Speaker of the Kano House of Assembly, and the Kano State House of Assembly.
The respondents include Aminu Ado Bayero, Nasiru Ado Bayero, Dr. Ibrahim Abubakar II, Alhaji Kabir Muhammad Inuwa, and Alhaji Aliyu Ibrahim Gaya.
Additional respondents are the Inspector General of Police (IGP), the Director of the Department of State Services (DSS), the Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), and the Nigerian Army. Justice Aliyu has scheduled the hearing of the motion on notice for June 11, 2024.
