On Thursday, amidst swirling rumors of the Emir's impending deposition, some operatives from the Department of State Services were seen at the palace of the Emir of Kano, Alhaji Aminu Ado Bayero.

This development follows the passage of the Kano State Emirates Council Amendment Law (Repeal Bill), 2024, by the Kano State House of Assembly on Thursday morning.

Newsmen who visited the palace around 11 am saw some DSS operatives stationed in the palace.

The Kano State Emirates Council Amendment Bill was considered on the floor of the House after scaling second and third reading on Thursday morning.

The assembly dissolved all four newly created emirate councils in the state.

Rumours suggest that this move could pave the way for the return of the deposed Emir of Kano, Sanusi Lamido II.
