Kano: Save judiciary from setting bad record against our justice system- SPANCI appeals to Ariwoola

Must read

A human rights group, Save the Poor and Needy Charity Initiative (SPANCI) has appealed to the Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN) Justice Olukayode Ariwoola to save the face of judiciary from setting bad record against Nigerian justice system.

The group made this declaration in view of the different conflicting court pronouncements over the Emir of Kano stool.

Our correspondent reports that Justice S.A. Amobeda of the Federal High Court in Kano had issued an order to evict the Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II from the Kofar Kudu Palace. The order enforced the authority of the 15th Emir of Kano, Aminu Ado Bayero.

Justice Amina Adamu Aliyu of the Kano State High Court on the other hand, has also issued an injunction that protected Sanusi from being evicted from the palace.

SPANCI in its reaction described the development as embarrassing.

SPANCI President, Comrade Yemi Ezekiel Bello in a statement made available to journalists on Thursday, explained that different court pronouncements from the courts is inimical to justice system, legal profession, rule of law and our democracy.

He then appealed to the CJN to act in his capacity to save the face and name of the judiciary from setting bad record.

“Case study Emir Sanusi Lamido Sanusi’s reinstatement high court order vs Emir Ado Bayero’s Federal High Court order.

“SPANCI frowns our face on this show of shame on our judiciary. This is a great abuse of power and office which must be immediately investigated and punishable actions taken by my lord the CJN who is the head of the national judicial council because this is a serious judicial perversion,recklessness and rascality which if not addressed has come to stay and will be repeated in future as precedent and antecedent to our justice system.

“The two courts have jurisdiction on the matter. They are courts of coordinate jurisdiction to each other but the state High Court earlier granted an other in favor of Emir Sanusi Lamido Sanusi but in turn of event Emir Ado Bayero who has been removed for a very long time also went to get what I call a tackling, conflicting, confusing and jeopardizing order from the federal high court to attack the initial order of the court in favor of Emir Sanusi Lamido Sanusi which has caused tension in Kano state and putting a bad name on our Judiciary at large as been corrupt.

“It is wrong to get the order of the court to attack the order of the same court. Get the lawyers involved punished to avoid a repeat of this in future. I think this has a political undertone.

“We hereby humbly appeal to my lord the Chief Judge Of Nigeria to act in his capacity to save the face and name of our judiciary from setting this bad record against our justice system, legal profession, rule of law and our Democracy”.
