JUST-IN: Despite Gov Yusuf’s Arrest Order, Deposed Emir Bayero Moves Into Mini Palace

The deposed Emir of Kano, Aminu Ado Bayero, has moved into the mini palace on Nasarawa Road in Kano, despite the order to the Kano State Police Command to arrest him.

The arrest order was issued by Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf on Saturday morning.

LEADERSHIP reports that the deposed Emir Bayero returned to Kano in the early hours of Saturday and was welcomed by a crowd of supporters at the Kano Airport.

His return to the city was viewed as an attempt to retake the Kano Palace, a development considered a threat to peace and frowned at by the State Government.

The State governor subsequently ordered the Commissioner of Police, Hussaini Gumel, to immediately arrest the deposed Emir for apparently daring the state government.

However, the embattled Emir Bayero has relocated to the mini palace called Nasarawa Palace in company of his crowd of supporters. He was yet to make a public statement on the developments in Kano Emirate and his fate.

Our correspondent reports that Nasarawa Palace is a temporary abode used by the Emir of Kano from time to time, especially during durbar, but it’s not the main residence of the Emir.

Emir Bayero was deposed on Thursday following the dissolution of five Emirate Councils in the State and subsequent restoration of the old Kano Emirate Council to its pre-2019 status and reinstatement of Muhammadu Sanusi II as Emir of Kano by the State government.
