Court Awards N10 Million Damages to Dethroned Emir of Kano, Bayero

Published

on

By

 

The Federal High Court in Kano has ruled in favor of the deposed Emir of Kano, Alhaji Aminu Ado Bayero, awarding him N10 million in damages for the violation of his fundamental rights and freedom of movement.

 

Justice Simon Amobeda declared that Bayero’s arrest without lawful justification was unjustified.

 

Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf had dethroned Bayero and reinstated Muhammadu Sanusi II as Emir, leading to Bayero’s legal challenge.

 

The court upheld Bayero’s right to move freely and live in Kano or elsewhere in Nigeria but did not order Sanusi II’s eviction from the palace.

 

Counsel for Bayero, Abdulrazaq Ahmad, hailed the judgment as a vindication, while counsel for the Kano State government and Sanusi II, Ibrahim Isa Wangida, saw it as a victory for their clients, but may appeal the damages award.

 

The court’s decision restrains the state government and security agencies from further breaching Bayero’s rights.

By

 

Sheikh Muhammad Mahi Niasse, the global leader of the Tijjaniyya Sect, has refuted claims that he asked Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, the 16th Emir of Kano, to relinquish his throne.

 

A letter circulating online had purportedly claimed that Sheikh Niasse urged Sanusi to step down, but the sect’s leader has denounced the letter as fake and forged.

 

In a counter letter written in Arabic and translated into Hausa, Sheikh Niasse’s spokesperson, Sani Auwalu Ahmad Tijjan, who is also the Commissioner of Religious Matters in Kano State, confirmed that the original letter was a fabrication.

 

The spokesperson described Sanusi as a disciple of Sheikh Niasse in Nigeria, known for his humility and sound religious character.

 

The sect has given those responsible for the fake letter 24 hours to come forward and explain its origin and intended recipient, failing which legal action will be taken.

 

This is the second time a fake letter has been attributed to Sheikh Niasse, and the sect is determined to take action to protect their leader’s integrity.

 

Security agents are already involved in the matter, and those found responsible will face the full force of the law.
