Sanusi sacks Kano Emirate Council Secretary

The Kano Emirate Council yesterday sacked the Acting Secretary of the council, Alhaji Isa Ado Bayero. Bayero, who is popularly known as Isa Pilot, is a longstanding associate and confidant of late Emir of Kano, Alhaji Ado Bayero.

It was learnt that Isah Pilot was sacked over accusations that he betrayed the Emir, Muhammad Sunusi II. He was said to have been on the watch list of the Emirate Council as a figure believed to have allegedly divulged classified documents.
The source said that the Emir was not comfortable with Isa Pilot because of the fact that he was more close to late Bayero family. The dismissed scribe was also believed to have served as business associates to the late emir.

“You should know that even the acting capacity of the Emirate Council secretary was given to Isa because of his perceived closeness to late Ado Bayero as a honour.” The Kano State House of Assembly recently suspended the probe of the emir after Governor Ibrahim Ganduje intervened in the investigation of alleged N6 billion misappropriation by the emirate council. The probe was believed to be targetted at the emir. Earlier, the Kano State Anti-Corruption Commission had instituted probe into the finances of the emirate council.
