The Emir of Kano has been dethroned and security agents stations in and around the palace.
It was observed that a team of security operatives on Monday stormed the palace of the Emir of Kano in Kano State.
This followed the removal of the Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II, from office by the state government under the leadership of Governor Gandudge. It will be recalled that there has been a fix between the Emir and Governor Gandudge.
The security agents seen in the palace includes the Police and men of Civil Defence with their patrol vehicle stations in front of the place.
It was the Secretary to the State Government, Usman Alhaji, that announced the removal of Sanusi during the State Executive Council meeting held at the Government House in Kano.
Alhaji said that the decision to remove the Emir was due to insubordination and refusal to attend meetings at the government house and to abide by Instructions given to him by the state government.
Rumours has it that there have been reports of a rowdy session in the Kano State House of Assembly shortly after the announcement of the emir’s removal.
A video has been trending on social media showing a rowdy session by the lawmakers which seems as though they are fighting and dragging the mace which was later taken away by a man believe to be the clerk of the house.
Note that about a week ago The Kano State public complaint and Anto-corruption agency invited the Emir to come and answer to a petition against him of selling lands belonging to the Emirates which ran into billions of naira.
But instead of responding to the petition the Emir got a court stoping the Agency from investigating him. Could it be he’s guilty?
