Kano Gov’t Orders Police to Remove Deposed Emir Bayero from Palace

The Kano State Government has ordered the police to remove the deposed Emir of Kano, Alhaji Aminu Ado Bayero, from the Nassarawa mini palace where is currently holding palace sessions.

Addressing journalists in Kano after the Federal High Court ruling in Kano that voided Muhammadu Sanusi’s reinstatement, the State Commissioner for Justice, Haruna Dederi, said the mini palace will be partly reconstructed and partly renovated.

Dederi said Emir Bayero is trespassing in government property as the Court has validated sacking him alongside four other Emirs after it validated the Kano Emirate Law 2024.

He said, “By the ruling of the Court, it has unequivocally. reaffirmed the validity of the law passed by Kano State House of Assembly and assented to by His Excellency the Executive Governor of Kano State on Thursday 23rd May, 2024 by 5:10pm. This part of the judgement is very fundamental to the entire matter.

“Further implication of the ruling is that all actions done by the Government before the emergence of the interim order of the honorable Court, are equally validated. This means that, the abolishing of the Five emirates created in 2019 is validated and the deposition of the Five emirs is also sustained by the Federal High Court. By implication this means that Muhammadu Sanusi II remains the emir of Kano.

“Following this Court’s ruling, Kano State Government has directed the State Commissioner of Police to remove the deposed emir of the 8 metropolitan local governments from the Government property where he is trespassing as Government has already concluded arrangements for the general reconstruction and renovation of the property including the demolishing and reconstruction of the dilapidated wall fence with immediate effect.”
