Since the release of the investigation report by Kano State Public Complaints and Anti-Corruption Commission indicting Emir Sanusi Lamido of N3.4billion fraud, many are of the opinion that the former CBN Governor may likely lose his throne as Emir of Kano.

According to the report made available to the media, it was confirmed that non-existent officials got millions of naira.

In one particular case, the commission lamented that the sum of N105million from the Kano emirate’s account was paid to one Engr. Sunusi Tijani, Technical Officer to the Emirate Council at United Bank for Africa (UBA) between 2014 and 2017.

The agency added that monies for CCTV, travels, hotel accommodation, telephone calls, fuel, projects among others were either inflated, mismanaged or diverted.

Highlights of the 19-page document include the indictment of individuals, amounts involved, obstruction of investigation by suspects and recommendations.

The commission is in receipt of a complaint filed by concerned friends of Kano emirate dated 28th March, 2017 on allegation of financial misappropriation by Kano Emirate Council under Emir Muhammadu Sanusi II.

The Emir found himself in the present mess after opposing Ganduje’s re-election bid, a move which backfired after the governor narrowly won a fiercely contested election.
