More facts have emerged on the reason why the deposed 14th Emir of Kano, Muhammad Sanusi II, has called on the residents of Kano to support the newly appointed Emir, Aminu Bayero.
In keeping with the Fulani culture of family marriage, Emir Sanusi married his first cousin, Princess Sadiya Bayero as the first wife. The first wife is the elder sister of the present Emir of Kano, Aminu Bayero who has just replaced him.
Their amorous relationship is started when they were quiet young stretching over 30 years ago. They have been married for 26 years.
The richest man in Africa, Alikois also said to have married from extended family circle and there are expectations according to Fulani culture that at least one of the men who will marry one of his daughters may come from the extended family in line with the tradition.
