The Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi, who is currently facing fresh probes by Kano state assembly, has been invited by the Kano State Public Complaints and Anti-Corruption Commission.

 

According to a report by TheCable on Wednesday, Emir Sanusi, through a letter sent to him, was asked to appear before the commission on Thursday to answer questions regarding the alleged misappropriation of N3.4 billion by the Kano emirate council under his watch.

 

Sources within the palace confirmed the invitation but said it is unknown whether the Emir will honour it.

 

The source said;

“That I may not confirm to you, but you know that Emir Sanusi is a law-abiding citizen.”

 

An official of the commission who pleaded anonymity also confirmed the invitation and said that the agency is bent on pursuing the probe against the Monarch.

 

He said;

“I can assure you that there is no going back on the probe against him and the emirate council.”

 

Recall that the Herald reported that the Emir of Kano is currently facing fresh probes on allegation of “unethical conduct” by an eight-man panel set up by the Kano State House of Assembly.

The probes were reported to have ensued following two petitions written against the Emir by one Muhammad Mukhtar from Ja’en Yamma quarters in Gwale Local Government, and another identified as Muhammad Bello-Abdullahi, head of the Kano State Society for The Promotion of Education and Culture.

 

According to Zubairu Masu, the chairman committee on local government and emirates, the petitions sought a “necessary and thorough investigation” by the house over alleged acts which are contrary to Kano State’s culture and tradition.
