Court adjourns hearing on Kano Govt suit against Ado Bayero

A Kano State High Court has adjourned till 2nd July a case filed by the State Government seeking to restrain Aminu Ado Bayero and four others from presenting themselves as Emirs.

The Court is presided over by Justice Amina Adamu Aliyu.

On Monday, during the hearing of a notice petition for an interlocutory injunction, the matter was reopened. Alhaji Aminu Ado Bayero’s counsel, Bar. Ibrahim Mukhtar, filed counter affidavits including three processes.

The procedures involve contesting the court’s eligibility to hear and decide the case, filing a motion to revoke the previous ex-parte order because it was improperly granted, and filing a counter affidavit contesting the court’s ruling to bar the defendants from representing themselves as the emirs of Kano, Bichi, Rano, Gaya, and Karaye.

Considering the urgency of the case, the Court, at its discretion, limited the time that counsel had to respond to all pending applications, even though the Originating Summons was ready for hearing.

Justice Amina Adamu Aliyu therefore, mandated that a notice of hearing be delivered to each defendant and scheduled the hearing for July 2.

The defendants in the case are, Alhaji Aliyu Ibrahim Gaya, Alhaji Kabiru Muhammad Inuwa, Alhaji Aminu Ado Bayero, Alhaji Nasiru Bayero, Dr. Ibrahim Abubakar II, the Inspector General of Police, the Director of the Department of State Services, the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, and the Nigerian Army.
