The 13th Fulani Emir had over the past few years been battling with undisclosed ailments that had compelled him to seek advanced treatment abroad.

Sequel to his health crisis, the revered Emir has been confined to the wheel culminating in disappearance from the public except on rear occasion.

Bayero who mounted the throne of his forefathers in the early 60s has been a stabilising figure in a city of 9 million people.

It was not clear when he will return as their was no announcement either from the emirate council or the Kano state Government, however his subjects have continue to offer special prayers for his health and safe returns to base.

While away, the Waban Kano Alhaji Abbas Sanusi. Who is the most senior counsellor in the emirate would hold forth.
