Despite police ban, Emir Sanusi holds Sallah Durbar in Kano (Pictures)

The reinstated Emir of Kano, Alhaji Muhammadu Sanusi II, held Sallah durbar to commemorate the 2024 Eid-el-Kabir occasion in Kano State.

Earlier, the Kano State Police Command announced the cancellation of Durbar celebrations in the state.

Emir Sanusi had led Eid prayer and sermon at the Kofar Mata Jumu’at mosque.



The Eid prayer was observed at the Kofar Mata Jumu’at mosque due to heavy rain that flooded the premises of the Eid ground which could not be used.

Emir Sanusi took the usual route back home while casually stopping along the way to receive greetings and homage from individuals and groups riding on a horse.

It could be recalled that the Kano Police Command had announced a ban on Sallah durbar after a joint security meeting in the State.



However, Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf expressed dissatisfaction with the decision, faulting how the police arrived at such without consulting him as the Chief Security Officer of the State.

Meanwhile, the 15th Emir of Kano, Aminu Ado Bayero observed his Eid prayer at the Nassarawa mini palace as earlier announced.

The embattled Emir had also announced cancellation of durbar activities during the Eid-el-Kabir festivities.

Neptune Prime reports that few days before the 2024 Eid-el-Kabir festival, a Federal High Court in Kano awarded N10 million compensation to dethroned Emir, Aminu Ado Bayero, over the violation of his human rights by the Kano State Government.

The Kano Emirship crisis has been going on for a while following the dethronement of Ado Bayero by Governor Yusuf and the reinstatement of Sanusi Lamido Sanusi as the Emir of Kano.
