Halt reign of madness unfolding in Kano – Inibehe Effiong tells Tinubu

A human rights lawyer, Inibehe Effiong has cautioned the federal government about interfering in the Kano Emirship struggle.

Effiong specifically said that the central government has no authority to appoint or enthrone anyone as Emir.

IgbereTV reported the reinstatement of Alhaji Muhammadu Sanusi II as the Emir of Kano.

This is consequent upon a bill earlier passed by the State House of Assembly on Thursday.

In a post on his X handle on Saturday, the legal expert said that President Bola Tinubu should urgently halt the reign of madness unfolding in Kano.

His statement comes after a joint team of security agencies, under the leadership of the Kano Police Commissioner, Muhammad Usaini Gumel, said they will obey the court order stopping the Kano State government from reinstating Emir Muhammadu Sanusi II.

Gumel, alongside other top security officers of the military, the DSS and others, warned that they would not allow anybody to break peace and unity of the State using what is happening in the Emirate Council.

Many observers believe that the federal government is allegedly interfering in what is supposed to be a state matter.

Before now, the Kano State Governor, Alhaji Abba Kabir Yusuf had ordered the immediate arrest of deposed Emir Aminu Ado Bayero.

The development followed after tension heightened over alleged forceful return of Bayero.

However, Effiong, a human rights lawyer, advised that the State should not be set on fire because of partisan politics.

He said: “The federal Government has no authority to determine Emirship dispute or to appoint or enthrone anyone as Emir.

“It is the responsibility of the King Makers and the Governor to do so.

“President Tinubu should urgently halt the reign of madness that’s unfolding in Kano.

“Do not set the state on fire because of partisan politics.”
