The Federal High Court in Kano has ruled that it has the jurisdiction to hear the case between deposed Emir Aminu Ado Bayero and reinstated Emir Muhammadu Sanusi II .


The case was brought by Aminu Babba Dan’Agundi, a senior councillor in the emirate, who alleges that his fundamental human rights were violated in the emirship tussle. The court had previously granted an order restraining the governor from enforcing a new chieftaincy law.

The respondents, including the Kano State Government, had argued that the case was a state affair and outside the federal court’s jurisdiction . However, Justice Abdullahi Liman ruled that the court can hear the case based on the applicant’s fundamental human rights, citing sections 42 and 315 of the 1999 constitution .


The case has been adjourned until Friday for a hearing of all pending applications, with the judge noting that the case is “too sensitive to be dragged for too long” .
