Deposed Emir Aminu Bayero’s Convoy Withdrawn, Barred From Coming Back To Kano


The convoy of the deposed emir of Kano, Aminu Bayero, has been withdrawn by Kano State government, following his alleged plan to return to his palace on Thursday evening.

Mr Bayero was in Abuja when the government dethroned him.

Credible sources said the dethroned monarch was trying to return to the palace to pack out his property and other personal belongings, availing himself of the 48-hour deadline given by Governor Abba Yusuf.

But sources said the state government stopped the emir’s move and asked security operatives to stop him from boarding flight to Kano.

A source in the state government told DAILY NIGERIAN that the government halted the move to avoid breakdown of the law and order in the state.

“When we learnt of his plan to return to the palace, we ordered all the vehicles in the convoy to return to the palace. The vehicles were already in the Kano airport awaiting his return.

“And we also drew the attention of security agents to thwart his plans of flying back to Kano at the moment,” said the source.


Earlier on Thursday, the state governor assented to Kano State Emirates Council (Amendment number 2) Law, 2024.

The amended law had abolished the establishment of 5 Emirate councils of Kano, Bichi, Rano, Karaye and Gaya in the state.

The governor signed the bill into law at the presence of the deputy governor, Aminu Abdulsalam, Speaker, Isma’il Falgore, the SSG, Abdullahi Bichi.

Speaking after the signing, the governor announced the reinstatement of Emir Muhammadu Sanusi ll, who was deposed by former governor, Abdullahi Ganduje in 2019.

The governor gave 48 hours to the deposed emirs to vacate their palaces.
