As reported by The Cable on Tuesday, May 28, it was observed that all the adjoining streets have been cordoned off and the palace premises itself has been heavily fortified.

Recall that on Monday, May 28, a Kano state high court restrained Bayero from parading himself as the Emir of Kano pending the determination of the suit.

The court also ordered the police to take over the Nassarawa palace, where Bayero has been staying since returning to Kano on Saturday, May 25.

Amina Aliyu, the presiding judge, made the ruling following an ex parte application filed by Ibrahim Isa Wangida, counsel to the applicants.

Kano: Why court ordered arrest of Bayero

But Justice Amina Aliyu of the state high court issued another order on Monday, May 27, restraining the five emirs, including Bayero, from parading themselves as Emirs in the state.

The court added that the order to restrain the Emir was granted to the plaintiff in the interest of peace in the state.

The court order compelled the state commissioner of police to ensure that its officers take over the mini-palace in Nasarawa and ensure the implementation of the ruling in the interest of justice.

Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf deposed Ado Bayero on Thursday, May 23, after signing the repealed bill into law and announcing the reinstatement of Sanusi II on Friday, May 25.

There has been palpable tension in Kano since Muhammadu Sanusi II was reinstated as the town’s emir last Friday. Interestingly, the deposed emir has refused to vacate his throne and leave the state.
