Court Grants Order to Halt Sanusi’s Reinstatement.


There is more drama in Kano as a court has reportedly granted an interim injunction restraining the inspector general of police, Kano state police commissioner, Nigeria security and civil defense corps, NSCDC and the department of state service, DSS from enforcing, executing, implementing or operationalizing the new emirate law, legally known as the Kano state emirate council (repeal) law, 2024.

The order was granted by Justice Abdullahi Muhammad Liman of the federal high court, Kano, upon motion ex-parte filed by one Aminu Babba Danagundi who holds the title Sarkin Dawaki Babba.

The court granted leave to the plaintiff to serve their concurrent originating motion and other court processes on the IGP in Abuja.

The interim order was granted after hearing counsel to Danagundi, Ibrahim Aliyu Nasarawa supported by an affidavit sworn to by one Halima Abdulganiyu.

The order directs all parties to maintain the status quo pending the determination of the suit.

The defendants in the suit include the Kano State government, the Kano State House of Assembly, the Speaker of the State Assembly, the Kano State Commissioner of Police, the Inspector General of Police, the Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps, and the Department of State Security.

“Parties are hereby ordered to maintain status quo ante the passage of and assent of the bill into law pending the hearing of the Fundamental Rights application,” Justice Liman ordered.
