The Emir of Kano, Mallam Muhammadu Sanusi II, has on the early morning, on Sunday, suspended the son of late Emir Ado Bayero, and District Head of Takai Local Government, Alhaji Bashir Ado Bayero, over insubordination.
Bashir Ado Bayero is the second son of the late Emir, to be stripped of their position, since the death of their father.
The first was the Ciroman Kano, Alhaji Sanusi Ado Bayero, who was removed on October 28, 2015, for a similar offence.
The Emirate Council’s Chief of Staff, Alhaji Munir Sanusi, said Bayero’s suspension followed his disrespect to the Emir, during one of the Palace sittings.
He said: “The suspended District head came to the Palace one day to seek permission to travel to Saudi Arabia for medical check-up, and after the Emir granted his request, he then submitted the name of the person he wanted to supervise the District, in his absence.
“But the Emir rejected the name and directed him to notify the office of Wakilin Gabas of the trip, so that he would appoint someone to supervise the District. It was at that point that Bayero showed disrespect to the Emir, in the presence of everybody, including the Dogarai”, he stated.
