Kano: Emirate Council dismisses 5 District Heads for disloyalty …Kingmaker who reportedly turbaned the Late Ado Bayero affected …Karaye also dismisses 2 District Heads

The Bichi Emirate Council, in Kano State, on Sunday dismissed five District Heads, including that of Dambatta, Muktar Adnan, who is said to be the longest serving kingmaker in Kano and reportedly turbaned late Emir of Kano, Ado Bayero, in 1963. 
The other four district heads in Bichi Emirate dismissed are those of Tsanyawa, Dawakin Tofa, Minjibir and Bichi.
The Emir of Bichi, Aminu Bayero, a son to late emir Bayero, sacked Adnan and the four others district heads in his Emirate Council for alleged disloyalty to the new emirate created by the State governor, Abdullahi Ganduje.
Adnan, before his dismissal, held the traditional title of Sarkin Bai Kano and District Head of Dambatta Local Government Area and was appointed kingmaker in 1954. Nine years later, he co-turbaned late Ado Bayero as Emir of Kano in 1963, according to Dabo FM, an independent radio in Kano.
The dismissed district heads are believed to be loyal to the current Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi, who is opposed to the creation of the new emirates. 
Similarly, the Karaye Emirate Council, in Kano State, has dismissed District Head of Kiru, Alhaji Ibrahim Hamza and that of Rimin-Gado, Alhaji Shehu Muhammad, for disloyalty.
The council made the announcement after its second meeting presided over by the Emir of Karaye, Dr Ibrahim Abubakar II at his palace in Karaye.
This is contained in a statement by the Information Officer of the Council, Alhaji Haruna Gunduwawa on Sunday in Kano. 
Gunduwawa said the council has also approved the appointment of Malam Shehu Ahmed as the new District Head of Karaye, among others.
