The Emir of Kano Sanusi Mohammed has been banished from Kano State to another State, this came hours after the state council announced his dethronement and ready to announce the new Emir.
But as the custom demands the old emir must be banished out of the State before the announcement of the new Emir.
So the police escorted him out to Nasarawa State before his successor was announced.
Kano now has new Emir in the person of Aminu Ado Bayero he will from henceforth perform the duties of the former Emir.
Meanwhile the for President of Nigeria, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo has written a letter to the former CBN governor Sanusi Mohammed, in his letter he congratulated the For Emir for taking his path to fight for Nigerians and sad because it’s dethronement.
Earlier today 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.
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.
