The Government of Kano State has vehemently denied rumour of plans to dethrone the Emir of Kano, Muhammad Sanusi II.
A group identified as ‘Renaissance Coalition, had in a statement issued by its spokesperson, Ibrahim A. Waiya, alleged that the Kano Government was plotting to transfer Sanusi II to Bichi Emirate, adding that if the Kano Emir refuses, he would be dethroned.
The group further warned Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje against executing the alleged plot, saying that it could destabilise the peace and security in the state.
However, Abba Anwa, the Kano Governor’s aide, denied the report, describing it as fake news. He noted that there was no such plan as alleged by the group.
