Hours after the sacking of four emirs installed by Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano state, some residents of Kano communities are currently embarking on a protest, according to the report by Premium times.
Legit.ng reported how the Kano high court nullified the creation of four new first-class emirates by the state government.
The four new emirates for which Governor Ganduje named first-class emirs in the state in May are Bichi, Rano, Karaye and Gaya.
Justice Usman Na’Abba ruled on Thursday, November 21, that the law creating the new emirates did not follow due process.
After the judgement, scores of residents of Karaye, one of the affected areas, trooped out to protest the judgement.
It was gathered that a similar protest is ongoing in Gaya.
According to the report, there are unconfirmed reports that similar protests were holding in other emirates.
The online news platform said that in Karaye, the residents carried placards, whose contents were in Hausa, to show their grievances at the judgment.
“Leave us in our new emirate, the Karaye emirate,” one of the placards reads.
“The people of Karaye are in support of the new emirate,” another placard reads.
