Bayero vs Sanusi: Court Delivers Ruling In Favour Of Dethroned Emir

Justice Liman Mohammed of the Federal High Court in Kano has declared that the court has jurisdiction to hear the suit involving the dethroned Emir, Aminu Ado Bayero.

In a judgement delivered on Thursday, the Federal High Court declared that it has jurisdiction over the dispute regarding the Kano Emirate tussle.

Justice Mohammed stated that his court has the authority to consider the lawsuit brought by Danagundi on behalf of Ado Bayero as the applicants’ assertions were based on violations of basic rights rather than chieftaincy matters.

The judge submitted that on the basis of that, his court possesses the inherent authority to consider, listen to, and come to conclusions on the matter.

He added that the federal high court has the authority to consider the case initially and retains that authority to proceed with the ongoing hearing.
