DSS operatives storm Emir of Kano’s Palace

Operatives of the Department of State Services (DSS) stormed the Palace of the Emir of Kano, Alhaji Aminu Ado Bayero on Thursday, May 23.

This is due to the passage of the Kano State Emirates Council Amendment Law (repeal bill), 2024 by the State House of Assembly.

According to report,the DSS operatives were seen waiting at the entrance of the Palace. It was gathered that the Emir Bayero is in Ogun state on a private visit to Awujale of Ijebuland, Oba Sikiru Kayode Adetona.

Rumours suggest that the abolishment of five Emirates could pave the way for the return of the deposed Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II.
There are insinuations that the Emir may be removed if Governor Abba Kabiru Yusuf assents to the amended law.
According to the bill, Governor Yusuf shall take all necessary measures to restore Kano Emirate to its previous position before the enactment of the repealed law.
It will be recalled that Ashraf Sanusi, the son of the dethroned Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II, said the decision of the Kano State House of assembly was a correction to the injustice against his father.

Ashraf prayed for his father, Sanusi Lamido, saying God would increase him in charity and increase him in piety.

Meanwhile,Muhammadu Sanusi II, has reportedly rushed out of the ongoing Rivers State Economic and Investment Summit in Port-Harcourt on Thursday, May 23 amid reports that he has been reinstated as Emir of Kano.

Sanu hurriedly left after delivering his keynote speech as increased security operatives accompanied him out of the venue.

Journalist couldn’t have a brief chat with Sanusi as he exited the Obi Wali International Conference Centre.

Meanwhile, Governor Siminalayi Fubara of Rivers state has congratulated Sanusi II on his reported reinstatement as the 14th Emir of Kano.

Fubara wished Sanusi a successful and fruitful reign that would bring progress and prosperity to the people of Kano state.
