Zamfara state high court sitting in Gusau has dismissed a (N6.5) billion naira suit filed the dethroned emir of Maru Abubakar Chika Ibrahim.
Zamfara State government has suspended the dethroned emir of Maru Abubakar Chika Ibrahim since when people of Kanoma district staged a protest alleging his involvement in aiding armed bandits activities when the Governor visited the town for a condolence visit.
In line with that action of Kanoma people, the Governor also ordered for his detention at the state government house, Gusau for eleven months.
But after his release from detention the dethroned emir headed to court challenging his unlawful detention, infringement of fundamental human right and also demanded for the payment of N6.5 billion naira as damage.
Those dragged before the high court included Inspector General of Police and five others, including State Director of SSS.
But Justice Bello Shinkafi dismissed the application on the ground that the law enforcement agencies have acted within the ambit of the law.
The judge said, the action of the police and the operatives of the Department of State Services (DSS), who are respondents in the suit, did not violate the applicant’s fundamental human rights.
