We Are Obeying Court Order Stopping Sanusi’s Reinstatement – Police


The Kano state police command has vowed to obey the order from the Federal High Court in the state that barred the Kano State government from implementing the repealed law of Kano Emirates Council and reinstating Sanusi as Emir of Kano.

LIB had reported that Justice Mohammed Liman of the Federal High Court in the state on Friday, May 24, issued an ex-parte order restraining Governor Abba Yusuf from reinstating Emir Muhammadu Sanusi II. The order also halted the implementation of the new law that abolished the four emirates of Bichi, Gaya, Karaye, and Rano.

While reinstating Sanusi as Emir on Friday, the governor faulted the order saying the judge issued it from the United States. Early this morning, Sanusi entered the palace while the deposed Emir of Kano, Alhaji Aminu Ado Bayero, arrived the state and settled into a mini-palace. The governor thereafter ordered the arrest of the deposed monarch, accusing him of attempting to disrupt the peace of the state.

However while addressing a press briefing at the headquarters of the command on Saturday morning, the Commissioner of Police, Usaini Mohammed Gumel, warned trouble makers to steer clear.

“The Police Command is expressly obeying the Court Order with SUIT No. FHC/KN/CS/182/2024 Dated 23rd May, 2024 issued by the Federal High Court sitting in Kano alongside ail Law Enforcement agents in the State.
