A Federal High Court sitting in Kano State has granted an ex-parte order restraining Kano State government from reinstating Emir Muhammadu Lamido Sanusi II who was unceremoniously booted out of office by the administration of former governor Abdullahi Ganduje.

The court presided over by Justice Liman who this medium gathered is currently in the United States, gave the order on Thursday night.

The case was lodged by a traditional title holder, the Sarkin Dawaki Babba, Aminu Babba-Dan’Agundi.

While ruling on the order, the judge granted leave to the Plaintiff/Applicant to issue and serve their Concurrent Originating Motion as well as all other court processes on the 6th Defendant (IGP) in FCT Abuja and outside the jurisdiction of the Honourable Court.

“That parties are hereby ordered to maintain status quo ante the passage the
and assent of the bill into pending hearing of the Fundamental Rights application.

“That In view of the Constitutional and Jurisdictional Issues apparent on the
face of the application, parties shall address the Court on same at the hearing of the
Fundamental Rights application which is fixed for the 3rd of June, 2024.

“That in order to maintain the peace and security of the state, an Interim Injunction of this Honourable Court is granted restraining the Respondents from enforcing, executing, implementing and operationalizing the Kano State Emirate Law Council (Repeal) Law.

“That parties are hereby ordered to maintain status quo ante the passage and assent of the bill into pending the hearing of the Fundamental Rights application”, Justice Liman ruled.

The judge therefore adjourned the case to 3rd day of June, 2024 for hearing of the Fundamental Rights application.
