Emir of Kano, Sanusi Wields the Big Stick on Sallah Day, Suspends Ex Emir, Bayero’s Son….See Details

Muhammadu
Sanusi II, Emir of Kano, has suspended Bashir Ado Bayero, a son of his
predecessor, Emir Ado Bayero for alleged disloyalty.
 
The Emir of Kano, Malam Muhammadu Sanusi 11, has suspended another son of his predecessor, Emir Ado Bayero for disloyalty, DailyTrust reports.
 
The suspended son is Alhaji Bashir Ado Bayero, the  District Head of Takai Local Government, Alhaji Bashir Ado Bayero.
 
The suspended district head was also directed to appear before the
palace disciplinary committee to decide the next line of action against
him.
 
In the meantime, Sanusi has appointed Alhaji Mahmud Shattima as an
interim administrator for the district, pending the recommendations of
the disciplinary committee.
 
Bashir Ado Bayero is the second son of the late emir to be stripped
of power  since the demise of their father. The first was the Ciroman
Kano, Alhaji Sanusi Ado Bayero, who was removed on October 28, 2015 for a
similar offence.
 
The Emirate Council’s Chief of Staff, Alhaji Munir Sanusi, said
Bayero’s suspension followed his disrespect to the emir during one of
the palace sittings.

“The suspended district head came to the palace one day to seek
permission to travel to Saudi Arabia for medical check-up and after the
emir granted his request, he then submitted the name of the person he
wanted to supervise the district in his absence.

“But the emir rejected the name and directed him to notify the
office of Wakilin Gabas of the trip so that he would appoint someone to
supervise the district. It was at that point that Bayero showed
disrespect to the emir in the presence of everybody, including the
Dogarai,”
he added.
