Court reinstates emir of Kontagora

A Niger State High Court sitting in Minna on Wednesday vacated its earlier order restraining Mohammed Barau Kontagora from parading himself as the 7th Sarkin Sudan of Kontagora.  

Justice Abdullahi Mikailu vacated the ex parte order after listening to arguments to the defendant’s counsel that the stool of the emir was not a perishable commodity and therefore, should not be left vacant.  

They argued that the current security situation in the country required the participation of traditional rulers in talking to their subjects on the issues of security, adding that the town should not be left without a king.  

Before adjourning to November 11 for hearing, the judge ruled that Kontagora should return to the stool pending hearing and determination of the substantive suit.
