Kano High Court Halts Eviction of Reinstated Emir Sanusi II

Justice Amina Aliyu of the Kano High Court has issued an order preventing the police, Department of State Services, and Nigerian military from evicting Muhammadu Sanusi II, the reinstated Emir of Kano.

The emir, along with the four kingmakers of Kano—Madakin Kano Yusuf Nabahani, Makaman Kano Ibrahim Sarki Abdullahi, Sarkin Bai Mansur Adnan, and Sarkin Dawaki Maituta Bello Tuta—filed the case.

On Tuesday, Justice Aliyu granted the order, also preventing the security agencies from arresting or harassing the emir and his kingmakers. She stated, “An order of interim injunction is hereby granted restraining the respondents, whether by themselves, their agents, privies, representatives, or assigns, from further harassing, intimidating, inviting, arresting, and/or invading the personal or official residence of the applicants (Gidan Rumfa), their servants, or any of the Kano Emirate kingmakers.”

Additionally, the judge restrained the respondents from seizing any symbols of authority, such as the twin spear of authority, the Royal Hat of Dabo, the ostrich-feathered shoes, the knife, and the sword of the Emir of Kano, pending the hearing and determination of the motion on notice.

Justice Aliyu also ordered the respondents to maintain the status quo and refrain from interfering with Emir Sanusi II’s duties until the motion on notice, dated May 28, 2024, is resolved. The hearing for the motion is scheduled for June 13, 2024.

Moreover, on Monday, Justice Aliyu ordered the eviction of the 15th Emir of Kano, Aminu Ado Bayero, from the Nassarawa mini palace.
