Tight security as court commences hearing on Kano Emirate tussle

The Federal High Court complex on Court Road in Kano is under strict surveillance with a noticeable increase in security personnel as the court proceedings regarding the Kano Emirate tussle kick off.

Law enforcement officers, including policemen and members of the Department of State Services (DSS), have positioned their vehicles strategically around the court premises, leading to restricted movement in the area.

The traffic has been diverted, rerouting vehicles away from Court Road towards Zoo Road and the Gyadi-Gyadi neighborhood.
