DSS storm Emir Palace in Kano amid swirling rumors



DSS storm Emir Palace in Kano amid swirling rumors

On Thursday, operatives of the Department of State Services (DSS) were seen at the palace of the Emir of Kano, Alhaji Aminu Ado Bayero, amid escalating rumors about the Emir’s potential deposition.

This development coincides with the Kano State House of Assembly’s passage of the Kano State Emirates Council Amendment Law (Repeal Bill), 2024, earlier that morning. The bill, which was considered after its second and third readings, led to the dissolution of all four newly created emirate councils in the state.

Journalists visiting the palace around 11 am observed DSS operatives stationed at the location, further fueling speculation about the Emir’s future.

Rumors suggest that the legislative move might facilitate the return of the deposed Emir of Kano, Sanusi Lamido II. This unfolding situation has captured significant public attention, with many watching closely to see how events will develop.
