The Governor of Kano State, Abba Yusuf, has dismissed reports of violent protests in the state over the reinstatement of Muhammadu Sanusi II as the Emir of Kano.

In a statement by the State Commissioner for Information and Internal Affairs, Baba Dantiye, the Kano government said there were only isolated incidents involving a few "small children and hired miscreants and thugs", which do not reflect the overall situation in the state.

The commissioner stated that some political elements are using false narratives to incite chaos in the state for their "personal gain and selfish interests". He reiterated that the decision to reinstate Sanusi was made in the best interest of Kano state after careful consideration.

The government maintained that the majority of Kano citizens have shown "remarkable restraint and understanding" of the government's actions, and urged the public to disregard the misinformation being circulated in the media.

While there were reports of some supporters of the deposed Emir Aminu Ado Bayero protesting on the streets, the Kano government said the situation is under control and it remains committed to maintaining peace and stability in the state.
