Kano Govt Rejects Court Judgment Awarding N10 million To Deposed Emir Of Kano, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi (Updated: 10 months ago)


The judgement by a Federal High Court which declared the banishment of the deposed Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi, as unconstitutional and also ordered that the sum of N10 million should be awarded as compensation has been rejected by the Kano State Government.

Justice Anwuli Chikere on Tuesday, November 30, awarded the N10 million compensation against the respondents comprising the police, the State Security Service (SSS) and the Attorney-General of Kano State. She also ordered them to tender a public apology to Mr Sanusi in two national dailies.

The federal high court judge held that the Emirate Council Law, 2019, relied on by the Kano State government in banishing Mr Sanusi was in conflict with the Nigerian constitution.

Chikere stated that the Nigerian constitution is supreme and any law that is inconsistent with it shall be null and void. She added that the former emir had the right to live anywhere, including Kano State, as enshrined in the country’s constitution.

Reacting to the judgement in an interview with Solace, Kano-based online news platform, the State's Attorney-General and Commissioner for Justice, Musa Lawan averred that the constitution recognises tradition and custom and that they should be protected.

Lawan added that the state government would do everything possible to protect the custom and tradition of Kano people.

He Said;

“Where a person that is part of the emirate decides to destroy the tradition and custom and do only things that he deems fit will not be allowed.

“For over 100 years , it has been the tradition and custom in our clime that when an emir is deposed, he is banished to another community and there was nothing unusual in the case of Malam Muhammadu Sanusi II."
