BREAKING: Security Operatives Storm Palace, Attempt To Evict Sanusi

Security operatives on Monday stormed the palace of the Emir of Kano in Kano State in an attempt to remove him from the place.

Sanusi was earlier dethroned by the state government following months of disagreement with Governor Abdullahi Ganduje. 

Since coming on the throne, Sanusi, who rose to become Governor of Nigeria’s Central Bank as a professional, has always spoken out against harmful traditions and practices in the North, often times drawing the ire of elites in the region.
