Sani said:

"The Sultan has thrown a Pebble into the Palace; hope the guards would not chase him hard with machetes, like Mbaka and Kukah."

Earlier, Sa’ad Abubakar III on Tuesday, May 25 urged the federal government to explain to Nigerians how much loots it had recovered and what they were being used for.

He spoke in Sokoto at the zonal dialogue with stakeholders on the National Ethics and Integrity Policy, for the northwest zone.

The Sultan, represented by the Wazirin Sokoto, Professor Sambo Wali Junaidu, said keeping mute on the recovered loots would spell doom for the fight against corruption in the country.
