FEDERAL HIGH COURT SET DATE TO RULE ON JURISDICTION OF KANO EMIRATE CASE                                                                      06-06-24

By Sadiq Aminu                                                               A Federal High Court sitting in Kano has set June 13th as the date for a ruling on the jurisdiction of a fundamental human rights suit concerning the Kano Emirate.

The decision was made by Justice Abdullahi Liman after hearing arguments from both the applicants and respondents on whether the court has the authority to entertain the suit.

The suit was filed by Sarkin Dawaki Babba of the Emirate, Aminu Dan’Agundi, who is challenging the process that led to the repeal of the Kano Emirate Council Law 2019.

This repeal paved the way for the re-appointment of Emir Muhammadu Sanusi II as the 16th Emir of Kano by Governor Abba Yusuf.

This follows an earlier order by the Federal High Court in Kano, which stopped the Kano State Government from enforcing the Kano State Emirate Council Repeal Law 2024.

The current crisis in the Kano Emirate began two weeks ago with the dethronement of Emir Aminu Bayero and four other first-class Emirs of Rano, Gaya, Bichi, and Karaye. Bayero’s dethronement and the reinstatement of Lamido Sanusi as Emir followed the repeal of the law that had been used by former Kano State Governor Abdullahi Ganduje to depose and exile Sanusi in 2020.
