A Kano High Court has stopped Alh. Tajuddeen Aminu Dantata, the eldest son of a Kano business mogul, Aminu, and his Northern Turf Club Authority from conducting this year’s Polo competition.
The High Court, presided over by Justice Ibrahim Umar, restrained Dantata (the Chairman Kano Turf Club) and Northern Turf Club Authority from holding or organising any horse racing in Kano on 14th and 15th August, 2021 or any date pending the hearing and determination of originating summons.
According to the order, Kano State Government is included as 3rd respondent.
Justice Umar granted the interim order upon an ex-parte motion by the applicant himself Barrister Bashiru Ibrahim with an accompanying 11-paragraph affidavit and duly sworn to by himself.
Justice Ibrahim Umar consequently ordered that leave be served to Northern State Turf Club Authority through Dantata.
The court adjourned the case to 6th October, 2021 for the hearing of the Motion on Notice.
