Protests In Kano As Sanusi Lamido Sanusi Is Named The New Emir

Riots have broken out in Kano state following the announcement of former CBN governor, Alhaji Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, as the new Emir of Kano. Bonfires have been lit around Kofar Nassarawa and the road to Government House by irate youths who are forcing motorists to fix leaves to their windscreens. The protesters were heard chanting “Ba muso, ba muso’’, meaning, “we don’t want, we don’t want”. Jamil Abubakar, Son of Inspector General of Police, tweeted this:


‘Kano people are not happy with the announcement so they are causing troubles in the town..’

He later added…

‘Heard the initial riot was not as serious as speculated ooo. Chai Nigeria our country shall remain one amen.’
