The Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Justice Olukayode Ariwoola, has summoned the Chief Judge of the Federal High Court and the Chief Judge of the Kano State High Court to appear before him over conflicting interim injunctions regarding the Kano Emirate tussle.

Persecondnews recalls that Justice S. A. Amobeda of the Federal High Court in Kano gave an order for the eviction of Emir Muhammadu Sanusi II from the Kofar Kudu Palace, reinforcing the authority of the 15th Emir of Kano, Aminu Ado Bayero.

In a counter-order, Justice Amina Adamu Aliyu, the head of the Kano State High Court, issued an injunction to protect Muhammadu Sunusi and other key figures against evacuation and potential harassment by security agents.

This order safeguards the Emir’s autonomy and prevents the seizure of crucial symbols of his authority, including the twin spear, the Royal Hat of Dabo, and the ostrich-feathered shoes.

The conflicting orders have caused significant confusion regarding the rightful authority and protection of the emirs in Kano.

The Federal High Court has fixed a hearing in the case for June 4, while the State High Court has scheduled a further hearing for June 13.
