The Emir of Kano, Emir Sanusi ll is again embroiled in another fresh trouble, as The Kano State House of Assembly has set up an eight-man committee to investigate alleged violations of culture and traditions as well as religious norms of Kano against Emir Muhammad Sanusi II.
The committee on public petition was mandated to investigate a petition submitted before the house by an association and an individual over the attitude and character of the emir which they claimed was in dispute to the culture and religion.
The committee, which was headed by the Deputy Speaker, Hamisu Chidare and seven others were given one week to investigate and submit its reports as well as recommend appropriate actions after extensive deliberations by the House.
The groups are Kano State for Promotion of Education and Culture and Mohammed Mukthar Ja’en Yamma, Gwale local government on the petition, the two groups appealed to the lawmakers to investigate the alleged purported misconduct and take an appropriate stand on it. However, the atmosphere in the ancient city has boiled over as kano indigenes have trooped out to protest the possible dethronement of the Emir.
