The Emir of Kano, Alhaji Muhammadu Sanusi II, has said the Hausa communities in Kano have no grudge against Igbo residents in the state.

The Emir of Kano, Alhaji Muhammadu Sanusi II, has said the Hausa Communities in Kano have no grudge against Igbo residents in the state. 

According to him, all the misunderstandings, animosity and rancour between the Hausa and Igbos were the handiwork of ‘rabble-rousers’, whose intention was to cause disaffection in a cosmopolitan city.

He said: “The Igbos are fully embraced and treated with kid gloves in virtually all spheres of human endeavour.

“If there was animosity and rancour from their host community, they (Igbos) would have found it very difficult to co-exist cordially.”



Speaking earlier, Abia state Council of Chiefs, Ebere Chidik said they were at the palace to pay a special homage to the Emir.

He said the delegation was also in the state to express their gratitude and appreciation to the Emir for his effort in dousing tension and resolving crisis between the Hausa community and the Igbos residing in the state.

Just recently, an elderly woman was murdered in Kano for making an unguarded statement which was termed as blasphemy.

The woman named Bridget Agbaheme was stoned to death after she allegedly told Muslims not to perform abolition at a certain spot.

Agbaheme, husband to the deceased said his wife was stoned to death, he added that Bridget was attacked by religious fanatics at Kofar Wambai market in Kano state.

Mrs. Bridget, who until her death was a member of the Deeper Life Church, was said to have defamed the name of the holy prophet.
