Emir Sanusi deposes late Emir Bayero’s son as Ciroman Kano over disloyalty

The Emir of Kano, Alhaji Muhammadu Sanusi II, has removed Alhaji Sanusi Ado Bayero, the eldest son of the late Emir of Kano, Alhaji Ado Bayero, as the Ciroman Kano and District Head of Gwale. The emir appointed Alhaji Nasiru Ado Bayero as his replacement.

The two men do not see eye to eye and contended against each other following the death of the former emir. It appears that the deposed Ciroman Kano has still not come to terms with Sanusi’s elevation.

The palace gave a reason for deposing Bayero in a statement signed by the Galadiman Kano, Alhaji Abbas Sanusi. The statement said Bayero was stripped of his revered title as a prominent member of the Kano emirate council close to the emir over his alleged recalcitrant posture of refusing to pay homage to the new emir as ordained by the teaching of Sharia.

The statement read: “It was the provision of the Sharia law and custom that had compelled every member of the Kano emirate council to be loyal to the new king with the demise of the incumbent, stressing that God in his infinite wisdom, gives power to whom He so ever wishes and takes it away from anyone He so wishes.”

It also added that paying homage to a king was an abiding obligation on the shoulder of every traditional title holder spanning many centuries since its creation adding that it was mandatory for any disloyal traditional title holder to either abdicate his title or allowed the emir to appoint any loyal person of his choice.

“As you are all aware, since the demise of the late emir and the appointment of his successor, on June 8, 2014, all traditional title holders including District Heads and others, had cringed to pay their respect and homage to Alhaji Muhammadu Sanusi II as the new emir with the exception of the removed Ciroman Kano.”

“It is in view of this development that his royal highness, the emir of Kano, Alhaji Muhammadu Sanusi II took the decision to confirm the appointment of Alhaji Nasiru Ado Bayero as the new Ciroman Kano,” the statement concluded.
