The Kano State Deputy Governor, Comrade Aminu Abdussalam Gwarzo, has blamed the National Security Adviser, Mallam Nuhu Ribadu, for allegedly facilitating the return of the dethroned Emir, Alhaji Ado Bayero to the palace.

Gwarzo, in a short video interview at Emir’s palace in Gidan Rumfa on Saturday, alleged that the NSA released two jets to bring Ado Bayero to Kano.

He said, “The National Security Adviser gave two jets to bring the dethroned emir to Kano and to bring him to the place. We have not understood their intention.”

Ado Bayero, who had been away from the state on a visit to Awujale of Ijebuland in Ogun State, was welcomed back to Kano by a crowd in the early hours of Saturday and he moved into a mini palace in Nassarawa, an ancient town in Kano.

Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf, who sacked Ado Bayero alongside other Emirs appointed by his predecessor, Abdullahi Ganduje, had given them 48 hours to vacate their palaces and hand over to the Commissioner of Local Government and Chieftaincy Affair.

The governor subsequently announced the reinstatement of Alhaji Muhammadu Sanusi, whom Ganduje deposed in 2020, issuing a reappointment letter to Sanusi on Friday.
