Written by on July 5, 2024

A Senior Advocate of Nigeria, Abdul Mohammed, and other counsel for the 15th Emir of Kano, Aminu Ado Bayero, on Thursday, withdrew their legal representation in the Kano emirate tussle suit.

Mohammed had informed the Kano State High Court that he had an affidavit of fact dated July 3, attached with a notice of appeal and a motion of stay of proceedings.

He urged the court to stay proceedings, pending the hearing and determination of the motion at the appeal court.

Mohammed also sought an adjournment to enable the team of lawyers to respond to the applications but the court declined to grant his prayers.

Dissatisfied with the ruling, he made known his withdrawal of service from the case.

Another member of the team, Senior Advocate of Nigeria, Sanusi Musa also announced the withdrawal of other lawyers for the first respondent, after which the team of lawyers staged a walkout from the hearing.
