Kano State Governor, Abba Yusuf, on Friday, promised to report Justice Mohammed Liman of a Federal High Court for allegedly giving an order stopping the reinstatement of Sanusi Lamido as the 16th Emir of Kano from the United States.

He said he would report the judge to the Nigeria Governors’ Forum.

Justice Liman had granted the order in an application filed by the Sarkin Dawaki Babba of the Kano Emirate, Aminu Babba Dan Agundi, to stop the Kano State Government from enforcing the Kano State Emirate Council Repeal Law which dethroned all five Emirs in the state.

However, Yusuf, while reacting to the court order after issuing the reinstatement letter to Lamido at Africa House, Kano State Government House, said, “The person that issued the court order was in America but he is ordering us to stop what we are doing. This issue of abuse I must present it before the Governor’s Forum so that we can tackle it accordingly.

“We are agents of following due process, that’s why we did what we did openly before everybody. Those that are meant to maintain that rule of law remains must follow that also.”
