A Court sitting in Kano State presided over by Justice Ahmed Tijjani Badamasi, again prevented Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje from creating four additional emirates in the state.
The judge also directed that the order be served to the respondents through publication in Daily Trust newspapers.
A Kano State High Court under the watch of Badamasi also ordered the governor to desist from appointing anybody as emir of the new Emirates.
This is the second court to issue such order restraining the governor from creating Gaya, Rano, Bichi and Karaye Emirates.
TheNigerian gathered that Justice Badamasi issued the order yesterday following the suit filed by four Kano kingmakers, Sarkin Bai Alhaji Mukhtar Adnan, Makaman Kano Alhaji Sarki Ibrahim Makama, Madakin Kano Alhaji Yusuf Nabahani and Sarkin Dawaki Maituta Alhaji Bello Abubakar.
Recall that a High Court sitting in the State, presided over by Justice Nasiru Saminu, had earlier issued a similar order.
Other parties in the suit are Speaker of Kano State House of Assembly Kabiru Alhassan Rurum; the assembly; the Attorney-General of the state, Sarkin Gaya Ibrahim Abdulkadir Gaya; Sarkin Rano Tafida Abubakar Ila, Sarkin Karaye Ibrahim Abubakar ll and Alhaji Aminu Ado Bayero.
The complainants are challenging the creation of four additional emirates in the state.
The case was adjourned to June 3 for hearing of the motion on notice.
