Kano Game Of Thrones: ‘Ribadu Hijacks Emirate For In-law Bayero’



Kano Game Of Thrones: ‘Ribadu Hijacks Emirate For In-law Bayero’

KANO, (iexclusivenews) – In a dramatic turn of events, the Kano Emirate is embroiled in a fierce power struggle.

The National Security Adviser (NSA), Nuhu Ribadu, has allegedly orchestrated moves to reinstate his in-law, Emir Ado Bayero, leading to tension and confusion in the ancient city.

The Allegations

Deputy Governor Aminu Abdussalam Gwarzo recently accused the NSA of ordering the return of HRH Aminu Ado Bayero as the Emir of Kano.

The perplexing part? The NSA reportedly provided two jets to transport the dethroned emir back to Kano.

The situation has left many scratching their heads, wondering about the true intentions behind these actions.

Military Deployments

To enforce the reinstatement, the NSA deployed officers from the Nigerian Army and the State Security Service (SSS).

In the early hours of Saturday, the dethroned emir arrived in Kano, accompanied by military escorts.

The security officials were acting on a Federal High Court judgment granted by Justice Muhammadu Liman, who is currently abroad.

Governor’s Stand

Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf, however, has taken a different stance.

He plans to report Justice Liman to the Nigeria Governors Forum for obstructing the reinstatement of Mr. Lamido as the 16th Kano Emir.

Meanwhile, Emir Muhammadu Sanusi II, who was reinstated, returned to the palace under heavy security, thwarting a rumored plot to enthrone Mr. Bayero.

Personal Connections

The NSA’s involvement is intriguing. He is the son-in-law of the deposed Emir, while the former Central Bank of Nigeria governor shares a close friendship with Nasir El-Rufai, the former Kaduna state governor.

El-Rufai’s ministerial nomination was previously halted by Mr. Ribadu, adding another layer of complexity to the situation.

Arrest Warrant

In a bold move, Mr. Yusuf directed the Nigeria Police Force to arrest the deposed emir. According to his spokesperson, the former emir’s return to Kano was an attempt to disrupt public peace.

Commissioner of Police Mohammed Usain Gumel, however, cited a court order in defense of their actions.

Conclusion: As Kano grapples with conflicting interests, the battle for the emirate throne continues. The governor’s recent decision to abolish additional emirate councils further adds to the intrigue. Only time will reveal the true victor in this high-stakes contest.
