Emirate tussle: Heavy security as Kano govt set to demolish

The Federal High Court in Kano on Thursday, nullified the removal of Emir Bayero and others by the State Government, however, the Kano State Government has insisted that Emir Sanusi Muhammad II remains the emir of Kano.

The struggle for the Kano State traditional  ruler over the week have had its twists and turn with the court and the state government on the side of their respective candidate.

Heavy security presence was seen around Nasarawa Palace, the official residence of the deposed 15th emir of Kano, Aminu Ado Bayero.

The Kano State Government had earlier ordered the eviction of the deposed traditional ruler.

Addressing journalists on Thursday evening, the attorney-general and commissioner of justice in Kano State, Haruna Isah Dederi, said Bayero should be evicted because all is set for the reconstruction and renovation of the property.

According to Politics Nigeria on Friday, security personnel have blocked all entrances to the palace which is owned by the Kano State Government.

The move is to prevent thugs from interfering with the planned demolition of the Nasarawa Palace.

A bulldozer and excavator were seen headed to the palace.
