Recalling the Emir Sanusi has been faced with various troubles in recent times, another trouble has sparked in Kano as the monarch has just sacked Jumat Mosque Imam.
Malam Muhammad Sanusi II, the Emir of Kano, just ordered the removal of Malam Salihu Muhammed, the Chief Imam of Limawa Jumat mosque in Kumbotso Local government Area of the state.
However, Muhammed is to vacate office with immediate effect as ordered by Emir Sanusi.
Muhammed was accused of flouting the monarch’s instructions on moon sighting and the eventual Eid prayer at the end of Ramadan fasting. The Chief Imam was said to have sighted the moon by himself and conducted his own prayer a day after that of the Emir who doubles as both traditional and spiritual head of the Emirates.
Emir Sanusi noted that the Imam did the same thing last year and was warned against it.
According to the Emir, the Chief Imam was sacked for being adamant. He added that Muhammed repeated the same action this year despite being warned against it last year. The Emir therefore had no option but to replace him. However, no comment has been heard from the sacked imam.
