The Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II, has reportedly suspended a son of his predecessor,  Bashir Ado Bayero, for allegedly being disloyal.

Before his suspension,  Bayero was the district head of Takai local government.

According to Daily Trust, the suspended district head was also directed to appear before the palace disciplinary committee to determine further actions against him.

Sanusi has appointed an interim administrator for the district -

Mahmud Shattima - pending the recommendations of the disciplinary committee.

According to the emirate council's chief of staff, Munir Sanusi, Bayero's suspension followed his disrespect to the emir during one of the palace sittings.

He was quoted as saying, "The suspended district head came to the palace one day to seek permission to travel to Saudi Arabia for medical check-up and after the emir granted his request, he then submitted the name of the person he wanted to supervise the district in his absence.

"But the emir rejected the name and directed him to notify the office of Wakilin Gabas of the trip so that he would appoint someone to supervise the district. It was at that point that Bayero showed disrespect to the emir in the presence of everybody, including the Dogara."
