The court also adjourned the hearing of the motion to June 11, 2024.

The orders followed the filing of the suit by the State Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice, Speaker of the State House of Assembly and the State House of Assembly against the deposed Emir of Kano, Alhaji Aminu Ado Bayero and four others, including Alhaji Aliyu Ibrahim Gaya, Alhaji Nasiru Ado Bayero, (Dr) Ibrahim Abubakar II and Alhaji Kabiru Muhammad Inuwa.
