Sanusi: CJN summons 2 judges over controversial Kano Emirate injunctions

Muhammadu Sanusi II, reinstated Kano Emir 
The Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Justice Olukayode Ariwoola, has issued a summon to the Chief Judge of the Federal High Court, and the Chief Judge of Kano State High Court to appear before him over conflicting interim injunctions regarding the Kano Emirate tussle.
Mr Soji Oye, the Director of Information, confirmed this to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Wednesday.
It would be recalled that the Federal High Court in Kano, had issued an order for the eviction of Emir Muhammadu Sanusi II from the Kofar Kudu palace.
The judge had by that ruling reinforced the authority of Aminu Bayero, who was sacked last Thursday by the Kano State Gov after the state House of Assembly passed a law terminating the balkanization of the Emirate.
A Kano State High Court later issued an injunction to protect the reinstated Emir Sanusi and other key figures from potential harassment by state authorities.
The order prevents any interference with the Emir’s autonomy and the seizure of key symbols of his authority.
These include the twin spear, the Royal Hat of Dabo, and the Ostrich-feathered shoes.
The conflicting orders have led to significant confusion regarding the rightful authority and protection of the emirs in Kano.
The State High Court’s case is set for further hearing on June 13, while the Federal High Court has adjourned its case to June 4. (NAN)
