Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II
The last has yet to be heard of the fight between the Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II and Kano Governor Abdullahi Ganduje.
The Emir fired a shot on Monday as he fired one of his personnel allegedly loyal to the Ganduje camp.
The staff, the Sokon Kano, Ahmadu Abdulwahab was said to have been barred from accessing the palace by the Emir shortly after the peace committee led by a former head of state to Nigeria, Abdulasalami Abubakar, met with the emir and the governor.
According to a Daily Trust report, the Sokon Kano was said to have made some derogatory comments against Emir Sanusi at the graduation of Police cadet officers held at the Police Academy, Wudil in Kano state, last week.
Legit also cited a recent clip which showed that the Sokon Kano was said to have made the comments during the event that was captured in a viral video.
Giving an account of how he was sacked from the palace, Sokon Kano said: “I reported to the palace today (yesterday) in the morning. I joined other palace guards in accompanying the emir to the palace, but minutes after the emir settled on his seat, the chief of staff to the emir, Alhaji Munir Sanusi approached me."
The Sokon kano said he was queried by the chief of staff over his presence at the palace to which he responded that he was at the place to resume his usual work. He said it was at that instance that the chief of staff informed him that his presence was no longer needed in the palace. He said he was told by the chief of staff that he (Sokon Kano) cannot align with the palace enemies and at the same time remain with the palace.
“He then ordered me to leave the palace and never to return, while I was still sitting, the chief of staff sent the emir’s orderly to the DCO in charge of the palace and after few minutes conversation, the DCO came and ordered me to leave the palace,” Sokon Kano said.
It was gathered that the Soko Kano is the third palace personnel to have been sacked by the emir over the crisis between Governor Ganduje and Emir Sanusi.
