Kano, Kano state – There is a heavy presence of security in and around the federal high court in Kano as the hearing on the emirate tussle begins on Thursday, June 6.

As reported by Daily Trust, operatives of the Department of State Services (DSS), the Nigerian Army and officers of the Nigerian Police Force (NPF) were seen guarding every entrance to the court and the streets leading to the court building.

The nationwide strike on Monday, June 3, and Tuesday, June 4, by the organised labour over the minimum wage, had affected the court’s planned sitting.

It is understood that the court will listen to the restraining order on the reinstatement of Muhammadu Sanusi II as the Emir of Kano.

TheTalk.NG had reported that Sanusi and Bayero have asserted claims to the position and are acting as such from two different palaces.

While Sanusi is holding court at the main palace, Bayero is at the mini palace at the Nassarawa GRA of the city.

Kano, one of the north’s volatile states, has the largest voting strength in the region.

Some stakeholders have asked President Bola Tinubu to wade into the controversy surrounding the Kano Emirship tussle before it degenerated into chaos.
