The Kano State House of Assembly has set up a panel to probe the Emir of Kano, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi.

The eight-man committee was created by Speaker, Kabiru Alhassan Rurum, on Wednesday, May 10.

The committee will be chaired by the legislator representing Warawa constituency, Alhaji Labaran Abdul.

Seven allegations made against Sanusi are:

  1. Accusing the state governor, Dr Abdullahi Umar Ganduje and the state legislators of mismanaging state resources while on an official visit to China.

  2. Making remarks in Kaduna on the proposed Kano light rail project which had tarnished his image, the government and the assembly as well.

  3. Allegation by the Emir that the state governor and his entourage wasted one month in China seeking for loan to construct the light rail in the state.

  4. Intentionally attacking President Muhammadu Buhari whenever he got an opportunity to speak at a public gathering. He said this had contravened the culture of traditional institution.

  5. Embezzlement of funds belonging to the Emirate Council.

  6. Tarnishing the image of the emirate by assigning his daughter to represent him at a public function, introducing strange religious issues and involvement in politics.

  7. Downgrading the honour of the Kano emirate council by assigning his daughter to represent him at a function organized by the #BringBackourGirls# group in Abuja, saying it was against the emirate’s tradition.
