BREAKING: The Reason Behind Sanusi’s Removal From Office as Emir
The Emir of Kano, Alhaji Muhammadu Sanusi ii has just been dethroned from office by the Kano State Government. This decision was taken over series of allegations levied against the Emir.
He has been accused of selling lands belonging to the Kano Emirate, to the tune of over 2 Billion naira. Owing to his refusal to respond to the series of the petitions against him as well as obstructing the investigation of the commission by securing a restriction order, the Kano State Public Complaint and Anti-Corruption Commission recommended that he be removed from power.
The decision to remove Sanusi as Emir is aimed at safeguarding the culture, religion, sanctity, tradition and prestige of the Kano Emirate which has been in existence for over thousands of years.
Few minutes after the traditional ruler’s removal was announced, a team of security operatives including men of the Nigeria Police and the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps stormed his palace.FOLLOW US on
