A state high court has ordered Mohammed Barau Kontagora to stop parading himself as the 7th Sarkin Sudan of Kontagora.
NaijaliveTV.com gathers that the defendants in the motion were the new emir, Mohammed Barau Kontagora, the Attorney General of Niger State, and the Commissioner for Local Government, Community Development and Chieftaincy Affairs.
The presiding judge, Justice Abdullahi Mikailu, restrained the first defendant, Mohammed Barau Kontagora, from parading himself as the 7th Emir “pending the hearing and determination of the plaintiff/applicants’ Motion on notice dated and filed on 11/10/2021.”
The court ruled:
“An order of interim injunction is hereby made and issued retraining all the defendants/respondents, their agents, privies and/or any other person by whatever name called acting on the authorities or persons claiming and/or parading or presenting or installing the 1st defendant by presenting a staff of office as the 7th Sarkin Sudan of Kontagora pending the hearing and determination of the plaintiffs/applicants’ motion on notice dated and filed on 11/10/2022.”
The counsel to the plaintiffs, W. Y. Mamman Esq, had prayed the court to restrain the Barau from parading himself as the 7th Emir. The Punch reported the other 15 contestants were challenging the selection process which produced Barau Kontagora as the new Emir of Kontagora.
