Aminu, in a writ of summons, wants the court to set aside the selection of the 10th defendant (the emir of Zazzau) by kingmakers on Sept. 24.

Earlier, the Court Registrar, Jaafaru Abbas, invited all counsel and parties to the Judge’s Chambers.

According to reports, Aminu is seeking the court to declare him the emir, having scored the highest votes cast by the kingmakers.

It was also gathered that on Nov.6, Justice Dabo refused an application seeking to stop the coronation of the Emir of Zazzau.
