According a statement signed by the Galadiman Kano and Senior Councillor in the Emirate, Alhaji Abbas Sanusi and made available to newsmen in Kano on Wednesday, Bayero was stripped of his title because he refused to pay homage to the Emir, since he was appointed on June 8, 2014.

Bayero was also the District Head of Gwale.

The statement said, "It is against the Sharia and the traditional institution for any District Head and member of the Emirate Council to refuse to pay homage to the Emir.

"The former Chiroma was a district head and a member of the Emirate council, hence the decision to remove him".

It added that all district heads and other traditional rulers in the state had since paid homage to the Emir, but the former Chiroma ignored the rulership of the Emir.
