Attack: Emir of Kano flown abroad for medical checks

.Churches hold memorial service

From Desmond Mgboh, Kano

The Emir of Kano, Alhaji Ado Bayero, was yesterday flown out of the country for medical checks, following last Saturday’s gunmen attack. The trip is coming barely 24 hours after some unidentified gunmen attacked his convoy in the state capital, killing three of his aides, three other persons and injuring others. The monarch departed Mallam Aminu Kano International Airport, Kano (MAKIA), at about 1.45pm.

He was flown to London in a chartered flight, believed to have been made available by the Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Mallam Sanusi Lamido Sanusi. He was accompanied on the trip by two of his injured sons, namely the Hakimi Nassarawa, Alhaji Nasiru Ado Bayero (Turakin Kano), who was shot on his leg, and the Hakimi Gwale, Alhaji Lamido Ado Bayero, who was badly pushed by the neck during the attack. Both sons, it is believed, would take advantage of the trip abroad to rest and also treat themselves.

Others that went with the monarch were Alhaji Ojudu Sanusi, who was described as an uncle to the CBN governor, as well as his private secretary, Alhaji Bala Isah. A special prayer was held for the Emir at the Kano Central Mosque in the state capital. The special prayer, which was held amid tight security, was attended by the Deputy Governor, Dr. Abdullahi Ganduje, all members of the Kano State Emirate Council as well as hundreds of personalities in the state.

The special prayer was led by the Chief Imam of Kano State, Prof. Sani Zaharadeen, who prayed for peace to return to the state and the country. The emir, in his brief remarks, directed all the district heads, Imams and Ulmas to continue to organise the special prayers in their respective areas and domains. He also charged Ulmas and Imams to organise and conduct prayers during Juma’at services. Similarly, the Deputy Governor appealed to the people to support and co-operate with the state government and security agencies in their efforts for a peaceful state.

It was immediately after the special prayer that the Emir drove down to the airport. The emir was badly shaken when he was attacked on his way back from an Islamic graduation ceremony (Saukan Karatu) ,which took place at Murtala Mohammed Mosque (Masallaci Murtala) in Hausawa Quarters of the state capital. Meanwhile, there are indications that two suspects may have been arrested by the police over the attack, a competent security source hinted in Kano yesterday.

The source said police were making progress, adding that the suspected gang members might have entered the state from Borno. He noted that the two detainees were being interrogated. Meanwhile, the mood in the ancient city of Kano remained dull and sober yesterday over the emir’s attack and the fear of a repeat of the January 20, 2012 operations by Boko Haram, which killed 185 people. Several churches in the state capital held memorial services for their members, who were killed in the attacks by the sect a year ago.

Places of worship like Baptist Church, Kano, as well as St. Louis Catholic Church, Bompai, Kano, were visited by Daily Sun. At St. Loius, Church Kano, a special prayer was held for the soul of the late ASP James Itodo (also the head of the security committee of the Church), who was killed while trying to return to the church premises to protect their members, who were trapped.

    Mr. Miser adeyemi, have ever heard of paid advertising?, You scam artist, you make me sick, every news story you read on the net, there you are peddling your 419 business operation looking for someone to scam. Stop wasting your time, serious business know where and how to advertise, I thank God no one is paying attention to you.

    • efula umunna January 21, 2013 at 3:30 pm

      Mr. Jahili you are right. You dont even blame the stupid man who chips in his fake advert on every issue presented here. He probably are working with the Vangard editorial otherwise there was no reason why they keep on publishing his crook advert.

      It is most likely they get something from him. Divide and rule.

    • latifa January 22, 2013 at 1:30 am

      yes, they are 419iners scouting for suckerz. dont be a fool. ignore their advert no matter how juicy. it all a lie.

  4. Igba . P. January 21, 2013 at 6:50 am

    The Emir and his sons, don’t they want to go to heaven to marry 21 virgins each? Why seeking medical help? Let them stay and die to go to heaven. Stupid believe that is breeding terrorism.

  5. Eazyboyy January 21, 2013 at 6:52 am

    The Almajiris are now turning their guns on their commanders.

  7. NWANKWO HYGINUS January 21, 2013 at 7:52 am

    WHY FLOWN TO ABROAD JUST FOR ORDINARY MEDICAL CHECK? DON’T WE HAVE HOSPITALS HERE IN NIGERIA??? THE FINGERS YOU POINTED AT OTHERS HAS REVERSED AGAINST YOU BOKO CATALYSTS!!!

  8. Holyman-Togo. January 21, 2013 at 9:00 am

    he was not wounded and he still left for London, but those with serious injuries are in the hospital in alamajary kingdom, malam sanusi has to be call to order he can not be wasting central bank money fpr nothing, last time he gave this aboki king over 100 million because his city was attacked but those who lost love once were not rembered till tomorrow, what a tribalistic central governor is he?

    hahahaha they all gathered and made plan that Nigeria will never be peaceful ,to make Nigeria ungovernable a child that say his mother wont sleep will not sleep also. the northerners have destroy there land they have wine with the blood of innocent Nigeria. this is just the beginning the sword of war will never depart from them.

  11. Alhaji Dan-azumi Gana January 21, 2013 at 11:20 am

    I wish Alhaji Ado Bayero and those injured quick recovery, for those that lost their lives in the cause of the attack, may Almighty Allah grant them paradise and may Almighty give the family of decease the courage and fortitudes to bear the irreparable lost.

  12. Bildado January 21, 2013 at 1:00 pm

    @ alhaji danzumi, the BIBLE says that there is no peace for the wicked; paradize isn’t meant for wicked people like you and your brother. The emir shouldn’t seek medical help; he should die and go to heaven so that 21 virgins( angels) would be given to him

  13. Ify boy January 21, 2013 at 1:16 pm

    HE WAS NOT wonded yet the emir of central bank chattered a private jet took the not wounded emir and his not seriously wounded sons to london for medical check-up. so nigerian hospitals doctors nurses are so unqulilfied to handle cases of a neck push shock and bullet wound what a generous sanusi.

    I think this in the beginning of the end of Boko Haram. When the hostilities started, they never condemned it, even when christians were attacked in their worship places, they applauded it. This is an answer to one of our prayer points. “May they eat their flesh and drink their blood”.

  18. Ema January 21, 2013 at 4:37 pm

    They say if u die fighting a holy war, u’ll inherit 21 virgins in heaven. I wonder if there ‘re (Brothels) in Heaven! 2ndly, Sanusi is governing d CBN with sentiments. Madam due process i hope u ‘re nt asleep?

  19. nkechinyere January 21, 2013 at 5:37 pm

    This Sanusi is a very lucky man, if he is an Igbo man they would have sacked him from office as they did to mrs Uzoma of NIS on the allegation that she favoured a particular tribe during a job recruitment exercise. If Sanusi wants to impress me, i can give him names of other Nigerians that were attacked by gun men in the Kano State, be that as it may, i wish Alhaji Ado Bayaro and his family well .

  20. Igba . P. January 21, 2013 at 8:18 pm

    Nazifi I agree but you mumu pass me.

    Sorry! Water really don pass gari!

    D prayers of d poor masses and d soul of those dat where cut short by bokoharam is crying out in vegance.God really done come to our Aid. Let those behind all d evil in dis country get ready cos no evil will go unpurnished.this time every man will get it according to his measure. Onyeweanyi nara ekene na ihi nkea.

  23. Felix. January 21, 2013 at 10:51 pm

    I think i’m loving this, how wonderful it is to see dogs eats each other up. Sanusi is next.

  24. Dele Odugbemi January 22, 2013 at 2:52 am

    This terrorism in the North has exposed the neglect meted on the people by their Leaders who occupied top government offices at federal level and northern States over the years.
    The Northern Leaders should work hard to put an end to this nonsense going on in their region otherwise this new found terrorism will consume all of them.
    I wish the Emir and all those injured speedy recovery.

    All these jobless young men always on the net making funny comments for every serious issues such as tthis are just more than senceless and that’s exxactly the reason why they couldn’t find ajob. Ur ethno relgious biasness in every ddiscuurssion is not in anyway agenuin argument . Afterall it isn’t the fualt of Islam that christianity is nearing complete collapse with gay and lesbian ,419ners leading the churches so pls go and have arethink pls

    • Chairman January 22, 2013 at 7:37 pm

      hyafa please repent and accept Jesus and it will be well with you. If actualy the greater number of ppl are migrating from Christianity to islam, don’t worry, Our JESUS already told us that in the last days that iniquity shall increase -and these are the last days – boko haram, and your lesbians and homosexuals and so on…

    Those of you blaming the Emir, governors and the rich for going abroad for check-ups are only displaying your jealousies and poverties. If you have their types of riches and attain their types of positions, you’ll do the same, let us be honest with ourselves at lest for ones. If I become as rich or attain their present status, I’ll go anywhere as they are doing; I’ll even jets out ones in a while with my family to shop in overseas.
    Those with motor-bikes are jealous of those with cars, those with moderate cars envy those with expensive cars/Jeeps, while this class envy those buying private Jets/planes etc. Where do you belong in these classes? Be honest are you not being envied? That is what you are arguing here.

  28. SWEETBORA January 22, 2013 at 5:21 pm

    SANUSI!!! IF THIS GUY WERE TO BE AN IGBO MAN EFCC, CPC NAME IT WOULD BE AFTER HIM. NOW THAT HE IS A FULANI MAN, HA, FG WILL KEEP QUIET, EFCC WILL CLAIM DEAF. GOD HELP THE POOR MASSES IN NAIJA.

  29. Chike January 22, 2013 at 8:54 pm

    I wish the Emir of kano healing and quick recovery wid his sons and other aide. God bless Nigeria
