It was shocking as the Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II, sacked his Palace Secretary, Isa Sanusi Bayero, popularly called Isa Pilot, for allegedly leaking sensitive information to the public, with the immediate emergence of the Emir’s younger brother, Mustapha Lamido Sanusi, as the new Palace Secretary.
A source who divulged this information on Tuesday night, disclosed that reports revealed that the sacked Secretary masterminded most of the negative stories and leaked information from the Palace recently.
According to the source, the Palace Secretary leaked all the financial dealings of the emirate to an online Publisher, adding that, his actions fanned the recent crisis between Emir Sanusi, the Kano State Government, and the State House of Assembly.
Another source, who worked under Isa Pilot, corroborated the story, saying: “It is no longer news in the Palace, that the ex-Palace Secretary was antagonistic to Emir Sanusi, and was responsible for most of the leaks coming out of the Palace.
“The recent rift between Emir Sanusi and the Kano State Government, exposed the mole role, so much to the level of leaking official documents to the media”, he said.
