Kano Gov. steps in to assist Ado Bayero’s daughter facing eviction in Lagos

A heartwarming act of kindness was displayed by Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf of Kano state as he came to the aid of Zainab Jummai Ado Bayero, the daughter of the late Emir of Kano, along with her brother and mother who were on the brink of being evicted from their apartment in Lagos.

In a statement, the governor’s spokesperson, Mr. Sanusi Bature, said he arrived Lagos in the early hours of Tuesday 25th June, 2024 to meet with the General Manager of the apartment where the Ado Bayero family had lived since early this year, Mr. Sunel Kumar, who vowed to evict them on Tuesday.

Bature said the governor’s intervention followed an out cry in the newspapers by Princess Zainab Bayero on behalf of her mother and brother who were allegedly neglected by the royal family after the death of late Ado Bayero.

Zainab, her brother and her mother have reportedly been facing difficult times since the demise of the late Emir of Kano Alhaji Ado Bayero.

The statement said the princess, her mother and brother thanked the representative of Kano governor for the gesture.

“You came at the right time, we were about to be forcefully evicted from the facility for our inability to pay the rent, they said today is final, we must move out by 3:00 pm and you came just fifteen minutes to the time, they have already mobilised youths to remove us out of the apartment, Alhamdulillah for your arrival,” Zainab reportedly stated.

On his own part, Bature stated that the governor’s humanitarian intervention was “due to the fact that many citizens of Kano feel that the matter did not portray the royal family and Kano in good light”.

“They are not only members of the Royal Family, they are our Muslim sisters and brother, currently in need,” Bature said.
