Justice Amina Aliyu, presiding over a Kano State High Court, has issued a restraining order against the police, the State Security Service, SSS, and the Nigerian military prohibiting them from evicting the reinstated Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II. 

The case was brought forth by the emir himself, alongside the four key figures of Kano: Madakin Kano Yusuf Nabahani, Makaman Kano Ibrahim Sarki Abdullahi, Sarkin Bai Mansur Adnan, and Sarkin Dawaki Maituta Bello Tuta. 

Alongside restraining the security agencies from any eviction attempts, Justice Aliyu has also barred them from arresting or harassing the emir and his associates.

“That an order of Interim injunction is hereby granted restraining the Respondents either by themselves, their agents, privies, representative, and assigns from further harassing, intimidating, inviting, arresting and or invading the personal or official residence of the Applicants (Gidan Rumfa), his servants and or any of the Kano Emirate kingmakers of doing such acts that would be capable of interfering with the Applicants’ rights generally in relation to this suit pending the hearing and determination of the motion on notice.

“That an order of Interim injunction is hereby made restraining the Respondents from taking further steps in connection with the matter or maintaining the status quo of staying all actions pending the hearing and determination of the motion on notice.
