Kano State high court bars security agencies from evicting Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II



Emir Sanusi II: Court blocks eviction in Kano

A Kano State High Court has issued a ruling preventing the Nigerian police, the Department of State Services (DSS), and the military from evicting the reinstated Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II.

The court also barred these agencies from arresting or harassing Sanusi and his kingmakers.

Justice Amina Adamu Aliyu issued the ruling in response to a case filed by the emir and the four kingmakers of Kano: Madakin Kano Yusuf Nabahani, Makaman Kano Ibrahim Sarki Abdullahi, Sarkin Bai Mansur Adnan, and Sarkin Dawaki Maituta Bello Tuta.

Justice Aliyu granted an order of interim injunction restraining the respondents from further harassing, intimidating, inviting, arresting, or invading the personal or official residence of the applicants, including Sanusi and the kingmakers.

The ruling also prevents the confiscation of the emirate’s symbols of authority, such as the Royal Hat of Dabo and the knife and sword of the Emir of Kano, pending the hearing and determination of the motion on notice.

The court’s ruling specified that the respondents are barred from interfering with the functions and duties of Muhammadu Sanusi II as the Emir of Kano until the motion on notice is heard and determined.

Justice Aliyu has adjourned the hearing on the motion to June 13, 2024.
