1min read

A High Court sitting in Kano on Friday stopped the Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II, from demolishing or tampering with any structure in the emir’s palace.

NAN reports that one Salim Bayero had filed a suit seeking an order to restrain the Emir, the Emirate Council, Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice, from destroying some structures in the palace.

Bayero also prayed the court to restrain the defendants from evicting occupiers of the structures pending the determination of a substantive suit on the matter.

In his judgement, Justice A.T. Badamasi, restrained the Emir and the emirate council from evicting any person residing inside the palace until the determination of the substantive application.

Badamasi adjourned hearing of the main suit till November 12 for hearing.

Reacting to the ruling, counsel to the plaintiff, Sanusi Sadiq, said that what the Emir and the council were seeking to destroy was the graveyard where no fewer than 13 former Kano emirs were buried.
