Aminu Ado Bayero,Emir of Kano

Aminu Ado Bayero, the 15th Emir of Kano, on Saturday, beckoned on the authorities to ensure justice is served in the State’s emirship saga.

Bayero was dethroned as the Emir on Thursday after the Kano State House of Assembly repealed a 2019 emirate law that was used to oust Muhammadu Sanusi in 2020.

Subsequently, Sanusi was reinstated by State Governor Abba Yusuf, while Bayero was in Ogun State on an official visit.

The Governor also ordered Bayero’s arrest “for creating tension in the state”upon his return

Speaking when he hosted some security agents, Bayero said he would accept the position of the law, noting that no one is above it.

He called for calm, stressing the need for peace in Kano.
