BREAKING: Court Reinstates Bayero As Kano Emir

A Federal High Court sitting in Kano has nullified the Kano Emirate Council Law used in reinstating Sanusi as 16th Kano Emir.

The court also set aside the law dethroning Ado Bayero and other emirs in the state.

In his ruling on Thursday, June 20, Justice Abdullahi Muhammad Liman dismissed the action of Kano State Government, ordering parties to maintain status quo.The court also faulted all steps taken by Kano state government to repeal the Kano Emirates Council Law.

Recall that the Kano House of Assembly had reversed the law after which Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf implemented it by dethroning Alhaji Aminu Ado Bayero as Emir of Kano.

The governor also reversed the creation of four emirates, Bichi, Rano Karaye and Gaya, by his predecessor, Dr. Abdullahi Umar Ganduje.

The law was relied upon to re-appoint the 14th Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II, who was dethroned by Ganduje in 2020, as the 16th Emir of Kano.

However, a kingmaker in the former Kano emirate, Aminu Babba Danagundi, the Sarkin Dawaki Babba, challenged the the law and asked the court, through his counsel, Chikaosolu Ojukwu (SAN), to declare the law null and void
