Sanusi vs Bayero royal tussle: How it started

Recall that Kano has been embroiled in crisis since the state governor, Abba Kabir Yusuf, reinstated Muhammadu Sanusi II as the Emir of Kano.

After his dethronement, Bayero returned to Kano on Saturday, May 25, to a hero’s welcome from a horde of his supporters.

However, Abba Yusuf, the Kano governor, immediately ordered Bayero’s arrest for “disturbing the peace of the state” after being smuggled to the ancient city in the night.

In a new development, the recently deposed Emir, Bayero, has refused to accept his fate.
