Today's Fact About Islam in Nigeria, the Emir of Kano and Sanusi Lamido Sanusi

The Emir of Kano is the second most-influential of Nigeria's triumvirate of Muslim leaders: at the top is the Sultan of Sokoto and number three is the Shehu of Borno.

His suspension was widely seen as politically motivated because his highlighting of graft had earned him powerful enemies.
