Sanusi, Other Emirs Who Have Been Deposed In Kano

Emir Sanusi

The Kano State House of Assembly has repealed the law establishing additional emirates.

The Assembly dissolved all the four newly created emirate councils in the state and subsequently reinstated Lamido Sanusi four years after his deposition by former governor Abdullahi Ganduje.

The dissolution of the affected Emirates was  sequel to deliberations on the floor of the House during plenary on Thursday.

According to a write-up by historian and author, Malam Adnan Bawa Bello, the first deposition of a Sarki (Emir) dates back to 1247-1290, when Guguwa Dan Gijimasu was removed from his throne.

Over the years, other Emirs have also faced the same fate, some ruling for mere days before they were kicked out.
