Kano State Governor Abba Yusuf on Friday said Justice Mohammed Liman of a Federal High Court in the state gave a restraining order from the United States over the reinstatement of Sanusi Lamido as the 16th Emir of Kano.

Ruling on Thursday in a suit filed by Aminu Agundi, the Sarkin Dawaki Babba of the Kano emirate, Justice Liman asked the defendants to “suspend” and “not give effect to the Kano State Emirate Council (Repeal) Law, 2024 as they affect all offices and institutions of the Emirate Council created pursuant to the provisions of the Kano State Emirate Council Law, 2019”.

Speaking on the court order at Africa House, Kano State Government House, Yusuf said he would report the judge to the Nigeria Governors’ Forum.

“The person that issued the court order was in America but he is ordering us to stop what we are doing. This issue of abuse, I must present it before the governors’ forum so that we can tackle it accordingly.

“We are agents of following due process, that’s why we did what we did openly before everybody. Those that are meant to maintain that rule of law remains must follow that also,” he said.
