Kano Emirate Tussle:Usaini Gumel "Police Won't Evict Deposed Emir, Gov't Filed A Case At High Court"The Kano State Police commissioner, AIG Usaini Gumel, gave an explanation for the agency’s choice to defy Governor Abba Yusuf’s order to remove Aminu Ado Bayero, the deposed Kano emir, from the miniature palace in Nasarawa. The police commissioner claimed that since the government had already filed a lawsuit about the eviction order, which was scheduled to be heard on June 24, 2024, it would be too quick to remove the deposed emir.CONTINUE FULL READING>>>>>

Punch reported that the governor had ordered the police to remove the deposed emir, but the commissioner of police declared that they would not remove him until the court rendered a decision.

AIG Usaini Gumel, the police commissioner, spoke over the phone with reporters on Friday. He said, ”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, June 24, 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.”

In the meantime, the ousted emir’s little palace in Nasarawa has more security surrounding it. Based on information provided by one of Bayero’s loyalists, the ousted emir continues to receive customary greetings from his devoted fans at the small palace.

This source refuted reports that the palace has a bulldozer positioned there in preparation for possible demolition.CONTINUE FULL READING>>>>>
