Tension in Kano as Sanusi, Bayero plan Friday prayer at palace mosque

There is apprehension in Kano following the decision of the reinstated Emir of Kano, Malam Muhammadu Sanusi II to lead the two rakat congregational Friday prayers at the emir’s palace.

This was announced in a statement signed by Danburan of Kano on Thursday evening.

The statement issued by Danburan of Kano invited residents to come and listen to the sermon to be delivered by Sanusi.

Similarly, another statement from an aide of the deposed emir, Alhaji Aminu Ado Bayero invites residents to join him at the emir’s palace Friday mosque to observe the Jumu’at prayer.

It stated that the movement to the emir’s palace mosque starts at 12.30 pm.

Meanwhile, the police command in Kano has disclosed that Emir Sanusi will lead the Friday prayers at the central mosque, not Bayero.

Police commissioner Usaini Gumel stated on Friday that Bayero will observe his Friday prayers in the mosque within the Nasarawa Palace, where he currently resides.

The police chief in Kano said the force and other state security agencies would provide robust security at the Emir of Kano’s palace, where Mr Sanusi is expected to lead the Jummah prayers.

“The police urge the general public to disregard the false reports and misinformation circulating on social media and go about their activities without fear of molestation or intimidation.

”The police will continue to provide necessary security to ensure that will enable residents to observe their Friday congressional prayers peacefully without threats to their lives and property,” Gumel said.

He urged the people to volunteer credible information on the movement of dubious characters for prompt security action in Kano.
