Why deposed Kano emir went to court

According to The Punch, the motion, which was dated May 27, was filed to restrain the respondents from arresting the deposed Emir.

The respondents in the suit are the Attorney General of the Federation, the Kano state attorney general, the Inspector General of Police, the Nigeria Police Force, the State Security Service, the Kano state commissioner of police, the Nigerian Airforce, the Nigerian Army, NSCDC, and the Nigeria Navy.

At the hearing of the case, the appellant, Michael Jonathan, said the matter was within the jurisdiction of the court because it was a fundamental human rights proceeding.

When did deposed emir file another suit

The originating motion filed by Jonathan was dated May 27 and was in support of an affidavit and a written address.

He urged the court to allow the case to be heard in the interest of justice and peace in Kano state.

The lawyer urged the court to dismiss the respondent’s preliminary objection, noting that doing so would be an abuse of the court.
