Aminu Ado Bayero

The Kano State Government rejected a N10 million fine on Saturday for violating the fundamental human rights of the 15th Emir of Kano, Aminu Ado Bayero. This fine was imposed by a Federal High Court in Kano on Friday.

During a press conference at the Government House, the Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice, Haruna Dederi, representing the governor, described the situation as unfortunate. He attributed the issue to enemies of the state attempting to disrupt Kano’s peace and stability.

The commissioner denied any violation of the deposed emir’s fundamental human rights and noted that the police have been acting on orders from higher authorities, despite the governor being the state’s chief security officer.

He appealed to well-meaning Nigerians and international allies to intervene to ensure peace and sustainable development in the state.
