KANO — Emir of Kano, Alhaji Ado Bayero, returned home from London, yesterday evening, aboard a presidential jet which touched down at Malam Aminu Kano International Airport at about 6.50pm.
Those who were at the airport to welcome him include government functionaries, traditional title holders, businessmen and artisans.
Ado Bayero, looking healthy, stayed briefly at the presidential wing of the airport where he received a retinue of his subjects.
Amid tight security, the 19th Fulani emir and his two sons were later conveyed to his palace as the crowd chanted Allahu Akbar (God is Great).
The emir was flown abroad on January 21 this year for medical treatment with his two sons, Sanusi Ado Bayero and Aminu Ado Bayero following an attack on his convoy where he lost his driver and three royal guards.
Action Congress of Nigeria chieftain, Alhaji Bashir Gentile, told Vanguard: “Kano is happy for his return and we shall remain committed in our prayers for Allah’s mercy.
“As you can see, the emir is hale and hearty and we remain grateful to Allah.”
