Emir Sanusi Takes Over Kano Palace At Midnight

The 16th Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II, has taken over the historic Emir’s Palace in the wee hours of Saturday.

9icevibez News gathered that Emir Sanusi was accompanied by the State Deputy Governor, Comrade Aminu Abdussalam, and other government officials to enter the palace around 1.30 am.

It was learned that the Emir‘s early morning entrance into the palace, under the escort of high-ranking government officials and security operatives was without the traditional pomp and pageantry.

According to Leadership, the development is said to preempt an alleged plan by the deposed Emir of Kano, Aminu Ado Bayero, to return to the palace.

The governor had given Bayero and the four other deposed emirs appointed by former Governor Ganduje a 48-hour notice on Thursday to vacate their palaces and relinquish all emirate properties to the deputy governor, who doubles as the Commissioner for Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs.
