Sanusi said the Kano Emir Palace is one united family which shares an affinity with one another, Daily Trust reports.

He stated this when he emerged as the Emir of Kano and was crowned on June 9, 2014.

He said none of their relatives are behind these things or sponsor protests against the order.

“I grew up under the care of the late Ado Bayero. I am more close to the late emir than my father who was outside the country. The late emir trained me; my first wife with whom I spent over 25 years with, is his daughter.”

The deposed Bichi emir confirmed his relationship with Emir Sanusi.

He said:

“We have our breakfast together then we also go out together. We are friends, we are family and in the family growing up we were the closest to each other.
