BREAKING: Court refrains DSS, Police, Army from evicting Emir of Kano Sanusi

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

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

Justice Aliyu’s order also prohibits the security agencies from arresting or harassing Sanusi and his kingmakers.

In her ruling, Justice Aliyu 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, or invading the personal or official residence of the Applicants (Gidan Rumfa), his servants, or any of the Kano Emirate kingmakers, pending the hearing and determination of the motion on notice.

“An order of interim injunction is also granted restraining the Respondents from attempting to hijack, pick, commandeer, confiscate any of the twin spears of authority, the Royal Hat of Dabo, the Ostrich-feathered shoes, the knife, and sword of the Emir of Kano, as well as other symbols of authority, pending the hearing and determination of the motion on notice.

“Furthermore, an order of interim injunction is hereby made restraining the Respondents from taking further steps in connection with this matter or maintaining the status quo by staying all actions pending the hearing and determination of the motion on notice.

“Additionally, it is ordered that the Respondents are restrained from interfering with the functions and duties of the 1st Applicant as the Emir of Kano pending the hearing and determination of the motion on notice dated May 28, 2024.”

Justice Aliyu scheduled the hearing for the motion on notice for June 13, 2024.
