The Kano State government has announced the Emir of Bichi, Aminu Ado Bayero as the state’s new Emir only hours after the abrupt removal of Muhammad Sanusi II.
Usman Alhaji, Secretary to the State Government announced the new appointment, saying it takes immediate effect.
Aminu is the son of the late Emir Ado Bayero.
Mr Bayero died in 2014 and was succeeded by Mr Sanusi, a former Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria.
The SSG at a press briefing on Monday announced the removal of Mr Sanusi for alleged insubordination and disrespect for constituted authority.
