Alhaji Tafida Ila Autan Bawo, one of the new emirs recently installed by Governor Abdullahi Ganduje, has reportedly suspended two traditional rulers within the Rano emirate.

Daily Sun reports that those affected include the district heads of Bebeji, Alhaji Haruna Sanusi, who recently announced his resignation from office in solidarity with Emir Muhammadu Sanusi.

He, however, later disowned the reported letter for unknown reasons.

The other affected traditional ruler is the district head of Tudun Wada, Bashir Muhammad.

It was gathered that Haruna Sanusi and Mohammad learnt about their suspension through a letter from the secretary to Rano emirate council, Alhaji Muhammad Idris Rano.

The letter showed that the monarchs were accused of disrespecting authority which reflected in their refusal to participate in the recent Sallah festivities within the emirate even though they were duly informed and invited.

The letter noted that the state’s ministry of local government and the other agencies have been informed of their suspension.

Legit.ng earlier reported that the Kano government headed by Abdullahi Ganduje, on Thursday, June 6, queried the emir of the state, Muhammadu Sanusi II.

The query, according to Daily Nigerian, had to do with the allegations leveled against the emir by an anti-corruption agency of Kano state.

Emir Sanusi was reportedly given 24 hours to respond to the issues raised in the query which includes allegations of misappropriation of funds.
