Kano lawmakers exchange blows over Emir Sanusi


Fisticuff erupted at Kano State Assembly on Monday when the Deputy Speaker and chairman of the Public Complaints and Petition Committee, Hamisu Ibrahim Chidari, raised observation over the ongoing investigation of petitions of alleged violation of the culture, tradition and religious values by Kano Emir Muhammad Sanusi 11.

Trouble broke out when Chidari, in his attempt to make observation known to members, was instantly opposed by members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the Assembly.

In the process, a heated debate ensued which resulted to a physical combat with the opposition members struggling to take control of the mace.

The mace rescued by security men and the Sergeant of Arm attached to the Assembly.

According to Punch, the fisticuff lasted for about 25 minutes before normalcy was restored and the Assembly procceded to a 30- minute break.

As at the time of filling in this report, security has been beefed up at the Assembly to forestall any eventuality.
