Kano Emir, Dethroned Emir Set for Showdown at Friday Prayer

The reinstated Emir of Kano, Malam Muhammadu Sanusi II is set to lead the Friday congressional prayers today at the main Emir’s Palace in Kano.

A title holder of Danburan din Kano, Munir Sunusi, disclosed this in a statement on Thursday, calling people to come and listen to sermon from the Emir.

Kano Emirate has been involved in royal struggles between Sanusi and Aminu Ado Bayero following sacking of the latter and reinstating the former.

Recall that Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf has assented to a new Kano Emirate Law 2024 which dissolved balkanized Kano emirates.

There had been legal battle between the Emir cousins which resulted in conflicting court orders that the Nigerian Bar Association, NBA, described as bringing shame and ridicule to the profession.

Earlier, a federal high court sitting in Kano had issued an interim order restraining the reinstatement of Sanusi while a state high court restrained Alhaji Aminu Ado Bayero from parading self as Emir of Kano and his eviction from a mini-palace in Nasarawa.

A court order aslo restrained Sanusi from parading self as Emir of Kano and ordered his eviction from the emir’s palace. A different order stopped the action.

The Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Kayode Ariwoola summoned the head of the federal high court and Kano Chief Judge on the conflicting orders.

According to Danburan din Kano, residents are invited to come and listen to the sermon to be delivered by Malam Sanusi II.

Meanwhile, in a short audio clip circulating on social media platforms, a former commissioner in Governor Abdullahi Ganduje, Musa Kwankwaso, called on people to troop to accompany the deposed Emir, Alhaji Aminu Ado Bayero to observe Friday prayer at the Emir’s palace mosque.

No much detail is available but a source said that the movement to the emir’s palace mosque starts at 12.30 pm.
