From Maiharaji Altine Gusau,

Zamfara state High Court has again adjourned the case filed by the former Emir of Maru to December 16, next week.

The Presiding Judge, Justice Bello Shinkafi said the case was adjourned due to a number of pending cases before the court.

Addressing journalists at the court’s premises, the Counsel to the Emir, Sam Emeka Anosuke said  “the matter was supposed to be ruled today, but shifted to December 16”.

Anosuke said “the court is always overloaded, that is  why the case is taking time to finish”.

He however expressed the hope that his client would get justice at the end of the case.

It could be recalled that the former Emir of Maru Alhaji Abubakar Cika Ibrahim was alleged to have been aiding and abetting banditry in his domain.

He was dismissed from the throne in 2019 and was detained in Government House for eleven months.

He has sued the Inspector General of Police and five others, demanding for N6.5 billon as damages for alleged character assassination and infringement of his fundamental human rights.
