Drama as angry youths in Kano chase Sanusi’s representative out of dissolved emirate (Video)

Some aggrieved youths in Karaye Local Government Area of Kano State chased away the representative of the 16th Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II, on Thursday.

According to an eyewitness who asked not to be named, the incident occurred when the Emir’s representative was on his way to the palace in the company of the Local Government interim chairman, Wada Nababa Tudun-Kaya.

Alhaji Ibrahim Abubakar II, former Emir of Karaye, is one of the five monarchs sacked by the Kano state government.

The witness said, “What happened was the Emir’s representative came into town and was received by the interim chairman first. So, on their way to go and register his presence, angry youths attacked them.

“You know we still want our emirates that were dissolved and we are yet to recover from what happened. What happened isn’t violent at all but one of the glasses of their vehicle was destroyed.

“There is a police station in front of Karaye palace; that helped in bringing the situation under control as the police dispersed the crowd,” he added.

The dissolution of the emirates has left many in the community feeling disenfranchised and has sparked ongoing tensions. Despite the non-violent nature of this latest incident, the destruction of property indicates the deep-seated anger and unrest within the community.

The representative’s visit to Karaye was meant to facilitate dialogue and address the concerns of the residents following the dissolution of the emirates. However, the hostile reception reflects the community’s dissatisfaction and the challenges ahead in resolving the conflict.

As the situation in Kano State continues to evolve, authorities are urged to engage with local leaders and residents to find a peaceful resolution that acknowledges the grievances of the affected communities.
