Breaking: Court halts reinstatement of Sanusi as Emir of Kano

A Federal High Court sitting in Kano has granted an ex-parte order stopping Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf of Kano from reinstating Emir Muhammadu Sanusi II pending the determination of a substantive suit filed against the reinstatement.

The Court also rejected the abolishment of four emirates – Bichi, Gaya, Karaye, and Rano.

The court subsequently directed all parties involved to maintain status quo ante pending the determination of the suit filed by Sarkin Dawaki Babba and Aminu Babba-Dan’Agundi on Thursday.
