Alhaji Muhammadu Sanusi II, The 16th Emir of Kano, has said he understands why Alhaji Aminu Ado Bayero and other deposed emirs are unhappy.

In an interview with Saturday Sun, Sanusi claimed they feel hurt because they can no longer enjoy the privileges they enjoyed as emirs.

Sanusi and Bayero are laying claim to the throne of the Kano Emirate.

Sanusi said, “What we are dealing with is a situation where somebody divided us. And actually, when you create these things, some people get some privileges. They didn’t ask for it, but they’ve enjoyed it for four years.

“Now when they lose it, it’s a problem. But the problem is not what has happened today. It is what happened four years ago. If it had not been done, we would not be in this situation today. We are one family, we are one people. Somebody comes, divides us up.

“Even in this family, he takes one emirate, gives it to a part of the family. Now, when people enjoy it for four years and you take it away from them, it becomes a problem.”

On Friday, a Federal High Court in Kano awarded N10 million compensation to Bayero over the order for his arrest and eviction from the palace.

Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf had dethroned Ado Bayero last month and ordered him to hand over power within 48 hours.
