Kano State Public Complaints and Anti-corruption Commission recommends suspension of Emir Sanusi

The Kano State Public Complaints and Anti-corruption Commission has recommended the suspension of Emir Muhammadu Sanusi 11 over the misappropriation of N3.4 billion.

The alleged amount was said to have been misappropriated between 2014 and 2017.

A preliminary report of investigation conducted by the commission and signed by its Chairman, Mr Muhuyi Magaji, recommended the suspension of the Emir and other suspects, especially for obstructing investigation.

The emir, tagged principal suspect, should be suspended pending the final outcome of the investigations, the commission said.

“This is a necessary administrative disciplinary action aimed at preventing the suspects from further interfering with the commission’s investigations”, the commission said.

The recommendation will escalate the worsening relationship between the administration of Governor Abdullahi Ganduje and the Emir, whose territory has been balkanised by the administration. Ganduje’s government following the recommendation of the House of Assembly split the Emirate into five and appointed emirs for Bichi, Gaya, Rano and Karaye.

The latest probe was in respect of a petition of financial misappropriation levelled against Kano Emirate Council under the present Muhammadu Sanusi II.
