Despite Court Ruling, Sanusi, Bayero Continue Rivalry, Lead Friday Prayers

183

On Friday, the 15th and 16th Emirs of Kano, Aminu Ado Bayero, and Muhammadu Sanusi II held court sittings in their separate palaces.

The embattled Emirs observed Friday congregation prayers at the Central Mosque and Nassarawa Mini Palace respectively.

The Federal High Court presided over by Justice Abdullahi Muhammad Liman had declared the actions taken by Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf on May 23, 2024, as “null and void”. However, it stated that its ruling did not affect the validity of the Kano Emirates  Council (Repeal) Bill 2024, which the Kano State House of Assembly passed.

The actions taken by the state governor on May 23, 2024, included the deposition of the 15th Emir of Kano, Aminu Ado Bayero, and the reversal of the status of the emirs of Bichi, Rano, Gaya, and Karaye emirates to that of district heads, following the collapse of their emirates into Kano Emirate.

Based on the law, the governor re-appointed the 14th Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II, as the 16th Emir of Kano.

Daily Trust reported that the Kano State Government had ordered the State Commissioner of Police to evict Bayero from the palace he is occupying as it has plans on the ground to demolish, renovate, and reconstruct some parts.

A few minutes after the announcement, caterpillars and trucks arrived at the Government House which signaled readiness for quick action.

However, security has been reinforced at the Nassarawa mini palace.

The roads behind and beside the facility have been restricted to vehicles by security operatives manning the entrance and exit points.
