BREAKING: Security operative takes over Kano Govt House as Gov Yusuf restores Sanusi as Kano Emir

There is an heavy security presence at Government House in Kano amidst Kano Emirship power tussle.

Security personnel manned crucial locations, but they did not limit passage in and out of the site.

Our correspondent gathered that the governor’s Chief Security Officer was noticeably concerned as he went about, reluctant to comment.

Top security operatives who earlier met with the 15th Emir of Kano, Alhaji Aminu Ado Bayero, are currently inside the government house holding another meeting.

Meanwhile, Governor Abba Yusuf who accompanied Emir Muhammadu Sanusi to the palace earlier on Saturday is still there.

Daily Trust correspondent saw his convoy inside the palace some moments ago.

Yusuf had earlier asked the police to arrest Ado Bayero for “creating tension”, but the police vowed to obey the court order against Sanusi’s reinstatement.

A Federal High Court in Kano on Thursday issued an ex-parte order restraining Governor Abba Yusuf from reinstating Emir Muhammadu Sanusi II.

Justice Mohammed Liman who gave the order also halted the implementation of the new law that abolished the four emirates of Bichi, Gaya, Karaye, and Rano.

But while issuing a reappointment letter to Sanusi on Friday, Governor Abba Yusuf faulted the order, saying the judge issued it from the United States.

Emir Sanusi later led Jumat prayers at Government House before moving to the palace.

But few hours after Sanusi entered the palace, Ado Bayero arrived the state and settled into a mini-palace.

He was later given military protection.

Comrade Aminu Abdussalam Gwarzo, Deputy Governor of Kano, had accused the National Security Adviser, Mallam Nuhu Ribadu, of facilitating the return of the dethroned Emir.

Gwarzo, in a short video interview at Emir’s palace in Gidan Rumfa, where Alhaji Muhammadu Sanusi, is holding forth, alleged that the NSA released two jets to bring Ado Bayero to Kano

He had said, “The National Security Adviser gave two jets to bring the dethroned emir to Kano and to bring him to the place. We don’t understood their intention.”
