A High Court sitting in Kano State and presided over by Justice Amina Aliyu has barred the five deposed Emirs of Kano from parading themselves as Emirs.

The order is coming after the deposed Emir of Kano Aminu Bayero refused to stop parading himself as Emir following a controversial Federal High Court order restraining Kano state government from enforcing the new law that dethroned the paramount rulers.

The case was lodged by the Kano State Attorney General, State House of Assembly Speaker as well as the House of Assembly against the five Emirs.

While ruling on the suit on Monday, Justice Aliyu restrained the five emirs from parading themselves as emirs.

“That an order of interim injunction is hereby granted restraining the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th & 5th Defendants either by themselves, servants, privies, and or any other persons or officers serving under them or acting in connection with any other person from parading themselves as Emirs of Kano, Bichi, Gaya, Rano and Karaye pending the hearing and determination of the motion on notice filed by the Applicants.

“That an order is hereby granted to the extent that the Commissioner of Police Kano State should immediately take over the palace of the Emir of Kano situate being and lying at State Road Kano and evict the 1 Defendant/Respondent from the said palace pending the hearing and determination of the motion on notice dated 24h May, 2024.

“That an order of this Hon. Court is hereby granted restraining the 1st, 2nd, 3rd 4th & 5th Defendants from parading themselves as Emirs of Kano, Bichi, Gaya, Rano and Karaye in the interest of peace in Kano pending the hearing and determination of the motion on notice.

“That an order is hereby made that 1st – 5th Defendants be served through the office of the Commissioner Police, Kano State who is to ensure immediate implementation of the order of the Hon. Court in the interest of justice.

“That the motion on notice dated 24/05/2024 is adjourned to 11 June, 2024 for hearing,” the judge ruled.
