The Emir of Kano, Alhaji Muhammad Sanusi II, has reportedly relieved the Village Head of Ganduje in Dawakin Tofa Local Government,  Alhaji Sani Ganduje of his duties.

Ganduje, who is the younger brother of the Kano state Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje, was sacked over what the palace described as “gross negligence of duty".

The Emir announced Ganduje's removal at a special palace sitting in Kano on Monday, February 1.

“The action was taken because it is an offence for one to smear the good image of the traditional institution.

“The Village Head was stripped of his turban as his offence bordered on gross official misconduct which the palace was all out to jettison for the sake of safeguarding the credibility of the revered institution,’’ Sanusi said.
