Amidst controversy the Kano State House of Assembly has called off probe of the Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II.

The decision was taken Monday afternoon after the Speaker, Alhassan Rurum, read a letter from the state governor, Abdullahi Ganduje, seeking them to suspend further probe of the emir.

In the letter, Alhaji Ganduje was said to have listed the names of the Acting President, Yemi Osinbajo, party leaders, former heads of state Ibrahim Babangida and Abdulsalami Abubakar, Sultan Muhammadu Sa’ad Abubakar, Aliko Dangote, Aminu Dantata, among others as those who lobbied on behalf of the emir.

While pleading with lawmakers to suspend the investigation, the governor was also said to have explained that following their peace meeting with the emir in Kaduna, the emir admitted all his mistakes and apologize to him.

A member of the House who pleaded anonymity quoted the governor as reasoning that he asked them to shelve the probe in respect to the notable personalities who waded into the matter not because the emir was not guilty to the charges.

The house therefore unanimously approved the governor’s request.
