A new Emir of Kano has been unveiled by the state government following the removal of Sanusi Muhammad II. He is Aminu Ado Bayero,  former Emir of Bichi.

Secretary to the Kano State Government, Usman Alhaji, unveiled the new emir hours after the removal of Sanusi II, adding that the appointment is with immediate effect.

A statement released on Monday by  Alhaji stated: “Following the resolution emanating from the State Executive Council today and the recommendation by kingmakers of Kano Emirate and the approval of appointment of the new Emir of Kano, following the resolution of the State Executive Council at its sitting of today, the 9th day of March 2020, with regards to the deposition of the former emir, in my capacity as the Secretary to the State Government, I have been directed by his Excellency the Executive Governor of Kano state, Dr. Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, (OFR), based on the powers conferred on him by the provision of section 11(1) of the Kano state Emirate Council Law 2019, that is equivalent to 1441 AH, to announce the appointment of Alhaji Aminu Ado Bayero, the former Emir of Bichi Emirate, as the new Emir of Kano Emirate. He is the 15th Emir of the Fulani in the Kano Emirate. “

Meanwhile, the deposed emir has been reportedly arrested and banished to a community in Nasarawa State.

The Nation reports that shortly after his dethronement was announced, security operatives arrested Sanusi, sealed off his palace, and whisked him out of the ancient city amidst tight security.

It was gathered that the security operatives are heading to Nassarawa state where he will spend the rest of his life in asylum.
