Recall that Legit.ng reported that there was confusion in Kano on Monday, March 16, as the state assembly suspended five lawmakers for six months over a fracas that broke out last week which led to the disruption of the plenary process.
The suspension trailed the removal of Muhammadu Sanusi II as the Emir of Kano by Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje-led government.
During a sitting last week, a report recommending the dethronement of Sanusi II resulted in a fight between APC and PDP members inside the assembly.
Legit.ng also reported that two of the five suspended members have described their suspension as illegal and invalid.
Alhaji Mohammad Bello Butu-Butu and Alhaji Labaran Abdul Madari issued the rejoinder to their suspensions while briefing the press in Kano state.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng reported that Sheikh Abubakar Gumi suggested that monarchy institution should be abolished because it is a tool in the hand of politicians.
The Islamic cleric said Muhammadu Sanusi's removal by Kano government suggested that the system is 'archaic and overdue.'
Gumi berated the deposed emir for being hypocritical, adding that Sanusi rode in Rolls Royce when his subjects languished in abject poverty.
