Nobody is above the law – Returned deposed Emir of Kano, Bayero

Alhaji Aminu Ado Bayero,

The Emir of Kano removed by the Kano State Governor, Alhaji Aminu Ado Bayero, has said that nobody is above the law.

He said this on Saturday after he occupied a ‘mini palace’, following the reinstatement of the hitherto deposed Emir  Muhammadu Sanusi, by the Abba Yusuf government.

Bayero called for calm but said justice must prevail over the matter.

He enjoys the protection of security operatives which insist the court order halting the repealing of the 2019 law that enthroned Bayero must be obeyed.

Asserting his position, Bayero said:

“I call on the people to remain law-abiding while awaiting the outcome of the legal process in this tussle.

“We call on the authority to do justice in this matter. Kano is a very influential state in Nigeria. Whatever affects Kano affects Nigeria. May peace reign in Kano. We pray for Allah to bless Kano with responsible and just leaders.

“Justice is the way to go on every issue. There will be justice. Nobody is above the law. We will accept whatever the law says. I appreciate all the people who have shown concern. As I said, justice will take its course. We will keep on praying for peace in Kano State. May Allah the Almighty protect us,” he said.
