A Kano state high court has restrained Abdullahi Ganduje, governor of the state, from implementing the break up of Kano emirate.

On Wednesday, the governor assented to a bill breaking up the emirate into five, leaving Muhammad Sanusi, emir of Kano, with the control of 10 out of 44 local government areas.
