Emir of Kano Sacks Two Traditional Rulers Over Extortion

The Emir of Kano, Muhammad Sanusi II, yesterday sacked Village Head of Hungu, Ibrahim Shehu and the Ward Head of Zangwan, Galal Nadabo Adamu for alleged extortion.
The two traditional title holders were allegedly involved in a 'syndicated case' with a Police Inspector, Umaru Abubakar, for collecting over N50,000 from the mother of an accused, Hauwa Sule, in Albasu Local Area of the State.
The Emir announced the sacking of the traditional title holders after receiving an investigation report on the deal from the District Head of Albasu, Alhaji Bashir Albasu, Katikan Kano at the palace.

A report revealed that already N33,000 has been collected out of the N50,000 from the mother of the suspect, Yusuf Sule of Hungun Village of Albasu LGA.

The Emir, however warned the traditional title holders to desist from any act capable of smearing the image of the Kano Emirate Council and the tradition.
