The installation of four new emirs by governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano has been declared null and void by a Kano state high court sitting in Ungogo.

Justice Nasiru Saminu, the presiding Judge ordered a return to status quo pending the hearing of the suit against the appointment of the emirs.

The defendants in the suit include the Governor, Speaker, Kano State House of Assembly, Clerk of the Assembly, the Commissioner for Justice and Government Printer.

Just yesterday,  Kano kingmakers filed another suit against the governor and state government challenging the balkanization of the emirate.

The four kingmakers are Madakin Kano, District head of Dawakintofa, Yusuf Nabahani; Makaman Kano, District head of Wudil, Abdullahi Sarki-Ibrahim; Sarkin Dawaki Mai Tuta, District head of Gabasawa, Bello Abubakar and Sarkin Ban Kano, District head of Dambatta, Mukhtar Adnan was filed on Tuesday.
