Police To Arrest Kano Emir Sanusi For ‘Fraud’

share on:

According to a report by Sahara Reporters, The Nigerian police have been ordered to arrest the newly-crowned Emir of Kano, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, on fraud-related charges stemming from his tenure as Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN). 

According to reliable sources at the Presidency in Abuja, the team of policemen at the Emir’s palace in Kano received the order from the Nigeria police headquarters to place Mr. Sanusi under arrest if he leaves the Kano Governor’s lodge.

The sources told SaharaReporters that Mr. Sanusi was to be arrested at his private home on Sunday night after his appointment was announced by the Kano State Governor.

It would be recalled that the presidency embarked on several frantic measures to frustrate the former CBN governor’s emergence as Emir, including the premature congratulations of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to one of the candidates before the choice was announced.

Since becoming Emir, Mr. Sanusi has been inside the Kano State governor’s lodge, receiving visitors and undertaking traditional rites.

The source also told SaharaReporters that some notable northern leaders have already warned President Jonathan to avoid such a reckless action so as to avoid setting fire to the already volatile situation in the city of Kano. It is not known if President Jonathan is favoring back channel dialogue aimed at resolving the mess.

  1. The news making round of the attempt to arrest the newly crown emir of kano by GEJ administration must be greatest joke of the century. I am convinced that GEJ will not tread such dishonouring path if advised to do so by hawks around him. Any attempt to try such unpopular move is a further indication of how clueless the administration is in a democratic setting. I call on Pa. Edwin Clark to call his son to order before he enter market naked.
    It is disgusting that five days after the crowning of sanusi the presidency is yet to congratulate him, this shows the level of maturity of the occupant. If the presidency is aggressived with the appointment the law court is there to challenge it.
    Fellow nigerians pls help me ask the presidency if the basis of planned arrest just unfolded itself, if not they should accept the will of people.
    Former heads of state should call their junior to order that nija did not need another self created crisis as been attempt.

  2. Please your Royer Highiness. Let the Will of Allah be reign in your kingdom .Fear Allah in all your activities and follow the ways of Our Holy Prophet Mohammed SAW.
