Kano Police Vow To Obey Order Against Sanusi’s Reinstatement


Kano Police Vow To Obey Order Against Sanusi’s Reinstatement

The Kano state police command has sworn to uphold the Federal High Court’s judgement prohibiting the Kano State government from enforcing the Kano Emirates Council’s repealed ordinance and reinstalling Sanusi as Kano’s Emir.

According to LIB, Justice Mohammed Liman of the state’s Federal High Court issued an ex parte injunction on Friday, May 24, preventing Governor Abba Yusuf from reinstalling Emir Muhammadu Sanusi II. The order also blocked the implementation of a new law that eliminated Bichi, Gaya, Karaye, and Rano emirates.

While reinstating Sanusi as Emir on Friday, the governor criticised the order, claiming it was granted by a judge in the United States. Early this morning, Sanusi entered the palace, while Kano’s deposed Emir, Alhaji Aminu Ado Bayero, arrived and settled into a mini-palace.

The governor then ordered the ousted monarch’s arrest on charges of seeking to disrupt the state’s tranquillity. However, while addressing a news briefing at the command’s headquarters on Saturday morning, Commissioner of Police Usaini Mohammed Gumel cautioned troublemakers to stay away.

“The Police Command is expressly obeying the Court Order with SUIT No. FHC/KN/CS/182/2024 Dated 23rd May 2024 issued by the Federal High Court sitting in Kano alongside all Law Enforcement agents in the State.

“Therefore, we are calling on members of the public to know that the Police in the State are working together with the military and other security agencies and are at full capacity for providing adequate security to everyone as we are committed to carrying out our statutory duties as provided by the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.”

He went on to say that the law-abiding people of Kano were well-known for their revered cultural heritage and respect for constituted authorities and that they should remain calm, patient, and continue to cooperate with security agencies as the matter described will be addressed by the Court on June 3, 2024. He further stated that the stance of the law is very clear: whomever, under whatever cover, is found to be planning to disrupt the peace enjoyed in the State would face the full force of the law.

“Therefore, as the Police Command is leading other security agencies to sustain the peace and peaceful coexistence for overriding interests, miscreants should stay clear of violence in all its ramifications and should not take advantage or hijack the current situation to launch an unprovoked attack on people, property and infrastructure of the State. Any person found with such a tendency will be ruthlessly dealt with according to the law of the land,” he said.

A Gentle Reminder: Every obstacle is a stepping stone, every morning; a chance to go again, and those little steps take you closer to your dream.
