The Plaintiff Alhaji Bashari Aminu, Iyan Zazzau had approached the Court through his lead Counsel, Y.U. Usman, SAN in the substantive suit praying the Honourable Court to set aside the appointment of Ambassador Ahmad Nuhu Bamalli as Emir of Zazzau by the Governor of Kaduna State on the ground that same was contrary to Zazzau Native Law & Custom in that he was not amongst any of those selected by the traditional Kingmakers of Zazzau Emirate.
The Plaintiff also filed a motion Ex- parte for interim injunction seeking similar prayers albeit in the interim as the motion on notice, the said motion Ex- parte was moved today by Samuel Atung, Esq on behalf of the Plaintiff.
In a considered ruling the Honourable Judge held that the justice of the case lies in putting the defendants on notice.
