Published

on

 

 

The Oluwo Alaafin of Oyo, Chief Ikusaanu lfaleye lyanda, has filed a petition against the Basorun of Oyo, High Chief Akinade Ayoola, over alleged criminal conspiracy, threat to life and conduct likely to cause the breach of peace in oyo town, Oyo State.

 

The petition, signed by the lawyer to Oluwo, M.R. Idowu Esq, was addressed to Oyo State Commissioner of Police, Adebola Hamzat.

 

“We act as Solicitors to Chief Ikusaanu lfaleye lyanda (Oluwo Alaafin of Oyo Town) (Hereinafter referred to as our Client) and pursuant to whose instructions we write this petition.

 

“It is the instructions of our client that on the April 8, 2024, Chief Yussuf Akinade Ayoola (Bashorun of Oyo Town) invited the Oluwo lsheke of Oyo Town in person of Chief Ifaniyi Omoyeni Ayinla to his home. He subsequently told Chief Ifaniyi Omoyeni Ayinla to go and warn our client that failure to support his choice to ascend the throne of Alaafin would subject our client to facing his wrath as the Prime Minister of Oyo kingdom.

 

“Furthermore, Chief Yussuf Akinade Ayoola (Bashorun of Oyo Town) boasted openly that he would harm various unknown individuals with various kinds of dangerous weapons to maliciously and intentionally attack our client, if our client fails to succumb to his threatening demands and command.

 

“Sir, as if that was not enough, Chief Yussuf Akinade Ayoola (Bashorun of Oyo Town) has now resorted to threatening fire and brimstones and warned our client not to move freely within Oyo Town and its environs. He boasted in strong words to get rid of our client and also terminate our client’s chieftaincy title.

 

“Sir, it is our fear that if these reckless criminal activities and threats are allowed to continue unabated, the situation might snowball into intractable civil unrest in the entire community and its neighbouring areas.

 

“This development has brought untold hardship and discomfort to our client.

 

“We, therefore, humbly request that our complaint be investigated by your good office and if found culpable, the said guilty individual be prosecuted for criminal conspiracy, threat to life and conduct likely to cause the breach of public peace,” the petition read.

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

Published

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.

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.
