A Federal High Court sitting in Kano has set aside the Kano Emirate Council Law used in dethroning Ado Bayero and other emirs in the state.

In his ruling on Thursday, June 20, Justice Abdullahi Muhammad Liman set aside the action of Kano State Government, ordering parties to maintain status quo.

The court also faulted all steps taken by Kano state government to repeal the Kano Emirates Council Law.

Recall that the Kano House of Assembly had reversed the law after which Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf implemented it by dethroning Alhaji Aminu Ado Bayero as Emir of Kano.
