‘Police Will Not Evict Ado Bayero From Palace’ – CP Gives Reason For Ignoring Governor’s Order

Usaini Gumel, the Kano State Police Commissioner, has said the Police will not evict the deposed Emir of Kano, Aminu Ado Bayero from his Nasarawa Palace.

Gumel said the Police would not carry out the eviction order due to the legal tussle surrounding the matter.

He explained that the Kano State government had filed an eviction order before the state High Court.

On Thursday night, the state government directed the Police Command in the state to evict Bayero from his Nasarawa Palace to pave the way for renovations.

The eviction order was issued by the state’s Attorney General and Commissioner of Justice, Haruna Dederi.

However, the CP said obeying the eviction order would amount to preempting the courts.

Addressing the issue on Friday in Kano, Gumel said: “The police will not evict the deposed Emir because the same government has filed a case at the State High Court on the eviction order, which would come up on Monday, 24th June 2024.

“The government is jumping the gun because the same government has filed a case on the eviction order, which is coming up on the 24th of June, 2024.

“So, if we carry out the order, it is like we are preempting the court because we don’t know what will happen at the court.”
