 A Kano Senior Magistrates’ Court in Kano has remanded a 20-year-old student, Sultan Bello, in prison custody for impersonating the Emir of Kano, Alhaji Muhammad Sanusi II.

The accused, a resident of at Ja’oji New Court Road Quarters, Kano, is facing a three-count charge of impersonation, cheating and defamation of character.

The Senior Magistrate, Hassan Ahmad, ordered the remand of the accused and adjourned the case until March 26, for summary trial.

The accused had pleaded guilty to the charge.

Earlier, the Prosecutor, Insp. Haziel Ledapwa, told the court that the accused committed the offences on February 27.

Ledapwa said that the defendant operated an Instagram page and dubiously posted himself as the Emir of Kano.

“The accused also demanded N1.4 million from one Barka Sani, N150,000 from Sadiq Saflan, N50,000 from Sadiq Sani, N50,000 from Aisha Ahmad, N50,000 from Surajo Zakari and N150,000 from Yahaya, totaling N1.85 million.

He also told the court that the accused demanded the money on the pretext that one Hausa film actress, Zubaida Mu’azu, sang a song for him as the Emir of Kano.

“The accused requested the complainants to pay the said amount into the actress’ account,” he said.
