Kano Emirship: Police disobey’s Kano Govt

336

Police authorities in Kano State has disobeyed the directives of Kano State Government to evict the 15 Emir of Kano, Alhaji Aminu Ado Bayero from the Nasarawa mini palace.

The directives by Kano State Governor, Abba Yusuf’s requested police assistance in evicting the deposed Emir Aminu Ado Bayero.

Kano State Police Commissioner, AIG Usaini Gumel, on Friday, gave reasons why the police ignored Governor Yusuf’s directive on the eviction of the deposed Emir of Kano.

This comes just days after a Federal High Court ruling nullified Sanusi’s reinstatement, which had been a controversial move by Yusuf himself. The Kano State government had hoped to utilize police force to remove Bayero from the palace, but the Police’s response indicates a reluctance to get involved in what is likely to be a volatile situation.

Speaking in an interview with the media on Friday, the police commissioner said obeying the governor’s eviction order would be tantamount to “jumping the gun”.

According to him, the same government that gave the order had filed a case at the State High Court on the eviction order, which would come up on Monday, 24th June 2024.

“The police will not evict the deposed Emir because the same government has filed a case at the State High Court on the eviction order, which would come up on Monday, 24th June 2024.

“The government is jumping the gun because the same government has filed a case on the eviction order, which is coming up on the 24th of June, 2024. So, if we carry out the order, it is like we are pre-empting the court because we don’t know what will happen at the court,” he added
