The Kano State Executive Council has unanimously approved the dethronement of the Emir of Kano Mallam Muhammad Sanusi II at a special sitting held today by the council.
Aftermath, there are indication of tension in every part of the state for fear of insecurity
According to the report from a resident of the state on telephone conversation, ‘ we’re serious afraid of what may happen, the state government has gone to far, we don’t know if Emir will agree to leave and if he doesn’t, there may be serious crisis, the Emir has his men fully on ground’ Abdullahi said
Earlier on Monday, members of the Kano State House of Assembly fought over plan to submit a report, recommending the removal of the Emir.
A group had on Wednesday last week submitted a petition before the house, calling for the emir’s removal for alleged violation of culture and tradition of the state.
The speaker of the Assembly, Abdulaziz Gafasa, without reading the exact content of the petition, then set up a committee headed by the deputy speaker, Hamisu Chidari, to investigate and report within one week.
But crisis broke in the Assembly on Monday Morning when the deputy speaker sought the approval of the house to present the report today.
As members of the opposition PDP insisted that the report must be delayed till Tuesday for further investigation, the session went wild and the mace snatched by member representing Warawa Constituency.
