Kano Government Issues Fresh Eviction Notice To Ado Bayero


The Kano State Government has instructed the police to evict Alhaji Aminu Ado Bayero, the 15th Emir of Kano, from Nassarawa mini palace where he is currently residing for a total renovation of the palace.

This comes after a Federal High Court in Kano, on Thursday, June 20, nullified the reinstatement of Muhammadu Sanusi II as the 16th Emir of Kano.

The court also nullified all the actions taken after the controversial reinstatement.


In spite of the decision by the Federal High Court, Kano Government ordered the eviction of Ado Bayero, according to DailyTrust.

Addressing journalists at Government House, Kano, on Thursday, June 20, the State Attorney General and Commissioner for justice, Barrister Haruna Isah Dederi, said the dethroned monarch should be evicted because all is set for the reconstruction and renovation of the property.

He said, “By the ruling of the Court, it has unequivocally. reaffirmed the validity of the law passed by Kano State House of Assembly and assented to by His Excellency the Executive Governor of Kano State on Thursday 23rd May, 2024 by 5:10pm. This part of the judgement is very fundamental to the entire matter.


“Further implication of the ruling is that all actions done by the Government before the emergence of the interim order of the honorable Court, are equally validated. This means that, the abolishing of the Five emirates created in 2019 is validated and the deposition of the Five emirs is also sustained by the Federal High Court. By implication this means that Muhammadu Sanusi II remains the emir of Kano.

“Following this Court’s ruling, Kano State Government has directed the State Commissioner of Police to remove the deposed emir of the 8 metropolitan local governments from the Government property where he is trespassing as Government has already concluded arrangements for the general reconstruction and renovation of the property including the demolishing and reconstruction of the dilapidated wall fence with immediate effect.”
