Heavy Security At Emir Bayero’s Residence As Kano Govt Mobilizes Bulldozers

There is heavy security presence around Nasarawa Palace, the official residence of the deposed 15th emir of Kano, Aminu Ado Bayero.

Politics Nigeria earlier reported that the Kano State Government had ordered the eviction of the deposed traditional ruler.

Addressing journalists on Thursday evening, the attorney-general and commissioner of justice in Kano State, Haruna Isah Dederi, said Bayero should be evicted because all is set for the reconstruction and renovation of the property.

In a video seen by our reporter on Friday morning, security personnel have blocked all entrances to the palace which is owned by the Kano State Government.

The move, Politics Nigeria understands, is to prevent thugs from interfering with the planned demolition of the Nasarawa Palace.

In a separate video seen by our correspondent, a bulldozer and excavator were seen headed to the palace.

Recall that the Federal High Court in Kano had nullified the removal of Emir Bayero and others by the State Government.

However, the Kano State Government has insisted that Emir Sanusi Muhammad II remains the emir of Kano.
