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.
