According to an eyewitness, the incident happened at Karaye Local Government Area of Kano State, when the Emir’s representative was on his way to the palace in company of the Local Government interim chairman, Wada Nababa Tudun-Kaya.

Alhaji Ibrahim Abubakar II, former Emir of Karaye, is one of the five monarchs sacked by the Kano state government.

The witness said, “What happened was the Emir’s representative came into town and was received by the interim chairman first. So, on their way to go and register his presence, angry youths attacked them.

“You know we still want our emirates that were dissolved and we are yet to recover from what happened. What happened isn’t violent at all but one of the glasses of their vehicle was destroyed.

“There is a police station in front of Karaye palace; that helped in bringing the situation under control as the police dispersed the crowd.”
