Three Feared Dead as Sanusi Receives Staff of Office


Three people   were feared dead and scores of others injured in Kano when supporters of the first son of the late Emir of Kano and those of the former Central Bank of Nigeria Governor Lamido Sanusi clashed in the city on Monday.
The clashes   which were later brought under control by security operatives took place shortly before   Governor Rabiu Kwankwaso   presented Sanusi   with   a letter of appointment and staff of office as the   Emir of Kano.

Areas where the pro and anti-Sanusi protesters had a face-off at about 10.30am were the Emir Palace Road and Kofar Nassarawa.

The youth made bornfires on the roads in Kofar Nassarawa and on both sides of the   Emir Palace Road before heavily armed policemen arrived and dispersed them.
