Palpable fear has enveloped the ancient city of Kano as the two contending Emirs- the reinstated Emir Muhammadu Sanusi II and the dethroned Emir Aminu Ado Bayero, announced their plans to pray Jumaat prayers at the Palace Central Mosque.

Leading reporters reports that already, Emir Malam Muhammadu Sanusi II, who resides in the Palace, and is closer to the contending Mosque, is expected to lead the two rakat Friday prayers.

Emir Muhammadu Sanusi II has been leading the Jumaat Prayers at the Palace Central Mosque as the Amir of the City, a statement explained.

The statement signed by Danburan Kano, Munir Sanusi Bayero, spelt out the movement of the reinstated Emir Muhammadu Sanusi II to the Mosque to lead the Jumaat Prayers.

The statement was issued Thursday night.

The statement by Danburan invited Kano residents to come and listen to the sermon to be delivered by the Emir Malam Muhammadu Sanusi II.

However, another statement from an aide of the deposed Emir, Alhaji Aminu Ado Bayero invited residents to join him at the Emir’s Palace Friday Mosque to observe the Juma’at prayer.

It stated that the movement to the Emir’s Palace Mosque starts at 12.30 pm.
