Justice Watch News Emirs 1

A Kano State High Court, presided over by Justice Amina Adamu Aliyu, has fixed July 2 for the hearing of all pending applications by counsel for both parties in the ongoing case instituted by the Kano Attorney General, Kano House of Assembly, and its Speaker.

The case seeks to perpectually restrain Alhaji Aminu Ado and four others from parading themselves as Emirs.

Previously, during the last adjourned proceeding, Justice Amina Aliyu granted an ex-parte order to serve all respondents with court processes through substituted means.

When the case resumed on Monday for the hearing of a motion on notice praying for an interlocutory injunction, Counsel to Alhaji Aminu Ado, Barrister Ibrahim Mukhtar, filed counter affidavits with three processes. These processes include challenging the competency of the court to hear and determine the suit, a motion seeking to set aside the earlier ex-parte order (arguing it should not have been granted), and a counter affidavit challenging the court’s decision to restrain the defendants from parading themselves as Emirs of Kano, Bichi, Rano, Gaya, and Karaye.

Although the Originating Summons is ripe for hearing, the Court, in its discretion, abridged the time for counsel to address all pending applications, considering the urgency of the entire case.

Consequently, Justice Amina Adamu Aliyu ordered that all defendants be served with a hearing notice and fixed July 2 for the hearing.
