alleged violent protests in some parts of the state regarding the recent
abrogation of the four emirates and reinstatement of His Highness,
Muhammadu Sunusi II, as the Emir of Kano.

A statement by the State Commissioner for Information Halilu Dantiye, said “in view of the current tense situation in the state, the need to allay the fears of the public following the reports, reassure them of government commitment in ensuring the protection of their lives and properties.

These hired unpatriotic individuals were only aiming to destabilize the state for the personal gain and selfish interests of their paymasters. The great majority of Kano state citizens have shown remarkable restraints and understanding of the sincere action of the state government,” the statement added.
