I will accept what law states in regards my controversial dethronement, says Bayero

The dethroned emir of Kano, Aminu Ado Bayero, has declared that he accepts whatever the law states in regards his removal, adding that Kano is an important state in Nigeria and peace must not be tampered with.

Penpushing reports that Bayero made this clear shortly after receiving the state Commissioner of Police at a mini-palace in the state on Saturday and urged Kano residents to remain peaceful and law-abiding amidst tension around the traditional seat.

The embattled sacked Emir who as of the time of filing this report was staying in the Nassarawa House, a private residence of the Kano Emirate Palace, emphasized that no one is above the law and that he is hopeful justice would prevail on the issue of his dethronement.

Penpushing further reports that most of Bayero told his supporters who stormed the mini palace where he returned after his sack that they should remain calm and law-abiding while awaiting the outcome of the legal process on this tussle,

The Kano State Governor, Abba Yusuf, it is recalled on Friday reinstated Lamido Sanusi as the 16th Emir of Kano in a colourful ceremony, after the Kano State House of Assembly abolished the five former emirates created out of the old Kano emirate and restated the old Kano emirate with only one emir.

Penpushing also reports that Sanusi was dethroned by the immediate past Governor Abdullahi Ganduje, of the state who is the current national chairman of Nigeria’s ruling party, All Progressives Congress (APC).

The former Governor attributed the sack of Sanusi in 2020 as a result of insubordination to Kano State Government authorities at the time, while on Thursday ahead of his (Sanusi) return the number of his subjects trooped out to welcome him

Penpushing reports that a Federal High Court had issued a last-minute order stopping Kano state government from abolishing all the five emirates created during the administration of former Governor Mr Ganduje and returning to the system where only one emir led Kano.

The ruling was a response to an application from Aminu Dan-Agundu, a Kano emirate official who opposed moving back to the old system, but in contrast the Governor shunned the order, arguing that judge who issued the order was in United States of America (USA)

Penpushing further reports that as of the time of filing this report, security agencies are insisting on enforcing the court order that halts the dethronement of Bayero, while in same vein security forces including the Nigeria Police Force, soldiers, and Civil Defence officials paid a visit to Bayero on Saturday.

The Kano State Commissioner of Police, Usaini Gumel, was said to have led the security forces to meet Bayero amidst tension over the emirate debacle in the state, while he(Gumel) had earlier told  the Kano State Government to obey the court order that halts the dethronement of Bayero.
