Information coming from Kano is very troubling as the Presidency is said to be taking its desperation to far this time. 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 CBN.
According to reliable sources at the Presidency in Abuja, the team of policemen at the Emir’s palace in Kano had received the order from the Nigeria Police headquarters in Abuja to place Emir Sanusi under arrest if and when he leaves the Kano State Governor’s lodge for the palace.
Already top northern leaders who have gotten wind of the wicked plan have warned President Jonathan to avoid such a reckless action for his good but the question is, will he listen?
Since becoming Emir of Kano, Sanusi has been inside the Kano State governor’s lodge, receiving visitors and undertaking traditional rites.
