Barau’s lawyer argued that the current security situation in the country required the participation of traditional rulers in talking to their subjects on the issues of security, adding that the town should not be left without a king.

Before adjourning the matter, the Judge ruled that Muazu returns to the stool pending hearing and determination of the substantive suit.
