The Emir of Kano, Malam Muhammadu Sanusi ll has been dethroned over alleged disrespect to the office of the governor and other government agencies.

The Secretary to the Kano State Government, Alhaji Usman Alhaji, said in a statement that the removal was with immediate effect.

The emir’s action according to the Kano government’s release, violated Part 3 Section A-E of Kano state law, hence the removal. He said the removal was in line with consultation with relevant stakeholders.

He urged Kano people to remain calm and go about their normal businesses.

It could be recalled that there had been festering bad blood between the monarch and the state governor for some time and this action has been long expected from many quarters while others have warned the government to desist from what they believed could lead to the destruction of the values and traditions of an ancient heritage represented by the EMIR.

The consequences of this monumental action by Governor GANDUJE remains to be seen.

More details later.

With additional reports gleaned from Daily Trust.
