Emir Of Kano Flown To London

The Emir of Kano, Ado Bayero along with two of his injured sons and some aides have been flown to the United Kingdom a day after his convoy was attacked on his way back to his Palace after attending a Quranic recitation competition.

Channels Television’s correspondent in Kano reported that the Emir left the Mallam Aminu Kano International Airport, Kano in a private jet which took off around 1:15 p.m. on Sunday.

The Emir is travelling on a day that the Kano State Police Command said that the death toll in Saturday’s attack had risen to five.

The spokesman of the Kano State Police command, Magaji Majie said that the Interim Chairman of Kura Local Government Area, Salisu Abdulahhi Kura and his driver, who left the convoy in the confusion that followed the attack were trailed by the gunmen in a cab and killed in a nearby street.

Security has been tightened in Kano as armed soldiers and policemen patrol the streets and intensify their search on vehicles at checkpoints in the city.

The Kano state Deputy Governor, Abdullahi Umar Ganduje said some suspects have been arrested in connection with the attack. He however refused to give the figure of those arrested.

At least five people were killed, including the emir’s driver and orderly, while several others were wounded in Saturday’s attack on the Emir’s convoy.

    I think UK health economic sector will get a boost and boom in the coming days, months and years  partly due to our patronage . The attack on ADO BAYERO l feel is just a tip of the iceberg , and from all indication and projection from us here , there will be many more attacks like that especially on caliphates and emirs and fat cats in the north. It appears that BH are now beginning to realize that attacking churches , mosques , women and children of innocent people does not make them any good , rather they become very unpopular , condemned , and hated by the very people like them who are suffering , and subjected to the same faith by the caliphates and emirs and northern fat cats…..Their focus is now shifted ever since the sultan’s pronouncement and GEJ deployment of troops to mali. Boko haram , now hates the very instrument that engineered them , and l feel they are now all out to bring down the present caliphate under the leadership of sultan and all his associated vestiges in the north .

    This is sad. Boko Haram has clearly shown that it is an enemy of even muslims. The Sultan, Emirs and Northern public officers both past and present are now at risk. Its their duty to rise up now and call their attack dogs to order or they would be wiped away by the menace they had pretended for too long didn’t exist.

    Bokos are not happy with the attack because they miss their target. The revenge will be on other Emirs and sultan. It is better they follow Emir of Kano to London now before Alla will welcome them in His bosom. This is just an issued warming for those that have ear.

    Why fly the Emir to London in a private jet? We need some
    explanations. Was he injured?

    The attack on ADO BAYERO is a smoke screen , a warning to the caliphates, of more attacks to come by boko haram. Sultan’s recent statement was just a watershed , he has not really asked hard questions regarding boko haram….,why they are doing what they are doing. Admitting that the north is the cause of boko haram is not enough even though that statement was belated , coming at a time when lots of innocent people ,men , women and children have lost their lives due to boko haram insurgency. Secondly , the sultan feels it is only the north that can address the issue of boko haram  , l totally disagree. I believe for this insurgency to stop, caliphates must corporate with the government of GEJ , be willing to assist the government in fishing out those elements in the north that sponsor , advice , sympathize and aid the insurgents. Anything short of this ,will be catastrophic to the caliphates and its leaderships at all levels in the north. Sultan MUST stop playing politics with the collective existence of nigerian states. MY QUESTION IS , WOULD THE SULTAN OF SOKOTO ADMITTED THAT NORTH IS THE CAUSE OF  BOKO HARAM IF BOKO HARAM’S ACTIVITIES AND KILLINGS WERE TO BE HAPPENING ONLY IN THE SOUTHERN STATES OF NIGERIA ?

    London as a city is proud of many hospitals in the status of university teaching hospital in Nigeria, whereas, some Nigerian universities don’t have a teaching hospital but manage to have a medical center with cups of paracetamol. May God protect them and grant quick recovery to the injured.

    Northern leaders and politicians has been non-challant about the activities of Boko Haram for a long time because they have been targeting the christians in the land. Now that the game plan has turned around, I hope genuine actions will be taken to clean our land of this national image destroyers.

    What is good for the goose is also good for the gander.

    See our leaders including the president (because he allowed his wife to take advantage too). Non of then take the issue of good health care seriously. Because they can always jump out to foreign land.
