The Emir of Kano, Alhaji Muhammad Sanusi, Wednesday night, travelled out of the state, despite the controversial law creating additional emirates in the state which substantially reduced his powers.
The Emir, whose trip came a few hours after the state governor, Dr Abdullahi Umar Ganduje assented to the controversial bill, was initially believed to have travelled out to perform the lesser Hajj but there are indicators that he may have travelled to London.
A top government source told Daily Sun that the monarch had applied to embark on the trip three days ago, adding that he did not wait to get the approval of the state government before he left.
He said that he was supposed to have applied for the trip seven days before the scheduled date.
