Social media is currently buzzing following the dethronement of the Emir of Kano, Muhammad Sanusi II, by the Kano State Government.

The removal of Sanusi was announced by the Secretary to the State Government, Alhaji Usman Alhaji, after the State Executive Council meeting on Monday.

According to him, a new emir would soon be appointed.

Usman Alhaji said Emir Sunusi’s dethronement was as a result of unanimous decision taken by Kano State Executive Council.

Many Nigerians have taken to the micro-blogging website, Twitter to condemn the decision of Governor, Abdullahi Umar Ganduje.

Some users said the governor who was allegedly caught receiving bribes does not have the right to dethrone Sanusi.
