It could be recalled that Governor Yusuf had dethroned Alhaji Aminu Ado Bayero as Emir of Kano and reinstated Alhaji Muhammadu Sanusi as Emir of Kano.

Angered by his action, the governor asked the police to arrest Ado Bayero for “creating tension” in the state with his coming into the town as he was not in the state when he was deposed.

However, Ado Bayero who set up his own court at the mini Palace in Nassarawa, got military protection, giving the impression that he had the Federal Government’s support.

The deputy governor of Kano, Comrade Aminu Abdulsalam Gwarzo had accused Ribadu of giving Ado Bayero the support to return to Kano after his dethronement.
