Emir of Kano’s Private Secretary sacked, accused of Sabotage

Alhaji Isah Bayero, the Senior Private Secretary of Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II has been sacked according to a report by The Punch.

Alhaji Isah Bayero, who is the Emir’s cousin was sacked over what was described as alleged sabotage.

A former pilot with the Kabo Air, Isah Bayero was appointed as an aide to Sanusi in 2014 when the former Central Bank of Nigeria governor became the emir to succeed the late Ado Abdullahi Bayero.

However, sources close to the Kano Emirate Council, told our correspondent that Isah Bayero was sacked after he was accused of leaking information on the expenditure of the council’s funds to the media.

The leakages led to a public outcry and eventual investigations into the finances of the Emirate Council by the state Anti- Corruption Commission and the Kano State House of Assembly.

Emir Sanusi 11 came under public criticisms, following unsubstantiated allegations that he inherited N4bn from the late Emir of Kano, His Highness, Alhaji Ado Abdullahi Bayero and squandered it.

Following the allegations, the Emirate Council promptly summoned a press conference, during which the Chief Finance Officer of the Palace, Walin Kano, Alhaji Mahe Bashir Wali,  described the allegations as false and baseless.

It was also gathered that the  emir’s  younger brother, Mustapha, who is the Falaki of Kano and an in-law to the late emir Ado Bayero, had been picked as Isah Bayero’s replacement.
