The Emir of Kano, Mallam Muhammad Sanusi 11, on Wednesday sacked his Senior Private Secretary, Alhaji Isah Bayero, over what was described as alleged sabotage.

A former pilot with the Kabo Air, Isah Bayero was appointed as an aide to Sanusi in 2014 when the former Central Bank of Nigeria governor became the emir to succeed the late Ado Abdullahi Bayero.
