The Yoruba community in Kano State has gotten a caretaker committee for its executive council organ to run its affairs in the next six months.

The Oba Yoruba of Kano, Alhaji Murtala Alimi Otisese, said he inaugurated the nine-man committee in compliance with a court order and urged its members to manage the affairs of the council “within the ambit of the Constitution of Yoruba Community Kano.

The committee has Sheikh Abduljaleel Shoga as chairman while Alh Kazeem Afolabi and Alh Abdulrazak Lawal will serve as its secretary and spokesman respectively.

Other members include Mr Segun Adegbegi, Price Zakariyau Abdulrasheed, Mr Olajide Johnson Oguleye, Alh Bashir Adeleye, Mr Timothy Kayode, and Pastor Kehind Samson Oladejo.

A Kano State High Court presided over by Justice Usman Mallam Na’abba has restrained some members of the Yoruba community in the state from identifying themselves as “Obas Yoruba of various local governments in Kano.”

The court also restrained members of the executive council of the Yoruba community in the state from “acting and parading themselves as members of the executive organ of the Yoruba community.”

The court issued the restraining orders pending the hearing and determination of a suit filed by one Hon. Seyi Samuel Olorunshola against one Alh. Abdullateef Faisu and 11 others.

The court further ordered that “the Oba Yoruba Kano, as the head of the Yoruba Community, appoint a committee as caretakers of the executive council organ to manage the affairs of the executive organ and exercise all powers within the ambits of the Constitution of the Yoruba Community Kano, for a period not more than 6 months or pending the hearing and determination of this suit.”

The court finally ordered the Nigerian Police Force to ensure compliance with all the above-mentioned orders towards maintaining peace and security among the community organs and its members in Kano State.
