Kano Govt evicts Aminu Ado Bayero from palace


The Kano State Government has ordered deposed Emir Aminu Ado Bayero to vacate Nassarawa Mini Palace to allow for renovation of the facility which is solely owned by the state government.

It also accused Aminu Ado Bayero of trespass on the Nassarawa Mini Palace.

This follows Thursday’s Federal High Court’s ruling setting aside the steps taken in repealing the Kano Emirates Council Law..

The decision was announced by the Kano State Attorney General (AG), Haruna Isah Dederi, at a press conference, emphasising the need for the renovation of the facility.

He affirmed that the ruling of the Kano High Court validates the actions of the state government, noting that Emir Muhammad Sanusi remains the emir of the prestigious Kano Emirate.

Recall that Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf had on May 25, 2024 ordered the arrest of Bayero, accusing him of creating tension within the state despite his removal. However, security agents including soldiers and policemen guarded the mini palace, preventing the arrest of Bayero
