The appointment and immediate installation of four new emirs by the Kano state government has been declared null and void by a Kano State High court sitting in Ungogo.
Justice Nasiru Saminu, the Presiding Judge ordered a return to status quo pending the hearing of the suit against the appointment of the Emirs.
The State High Court had on May 10th issued an exparte order restraining the Balkanisation of Kano Emirate and installation of new Emirs.
Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje of Kano State had created four new Emirate Councils with first Class Emirs in Karaye, Gaya, Rano and Bichi a development that brought about heated controversy.
However, some Four Kingmakers that have the traditional legal powers to appoint new Emirs, did not receive the action of the Governor wholeheartedly thereby calling for the nullification of the appointment.
