Kano Gov’t issues fresh eviction notice to Ado Bayero



The Kano State Government has ordered the police to remove the 15th Emir of Kano, Alhaji Aminu Ado Bayero, from the Nassarawa mini palace. This directive follows his recent dethronement and subsequent return to the state.

Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf, who had previously issued a similar directive, is reportedly irked by Ado Bayero’s presence, accusing him of fueling tension in the region. In response, the governor has instructed the police to arrest the dethroned monarch.

Despite the governor’s order, more soldiers have been deployed to the mini palace to ensure Ado Bayero’s security. The situation remains volatile as the police navigate the conflicting directives.

Addressing the media on Thursday, Kano State Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice, Barrister Haruna Isah Dederi, emphasized the court’s ruling, which validated the Kano State House of Assembly’s law and Governor Yusuf’s assent on May 23, 2024. This ruling affirmed the abolition of the five emirates created in 2019 and the deposition of the five emirs, reinstating Muhammadu Sanusi II as the Emir of Kano.

Dederi stated, “By the ruling of the Court, it has unequivocally reaffirmed the validity of the law passed by the Kano State House of Assembly. Following this Court’s ruling, Kano State Government has directed the State Commissioner of Police to remove the deposed emir from the Government property for imminent reconstruction and renovation.”
