Malam Muhammad Sanusi II, the Emir of Kano, has ordered
the removal of Malam Salihu Muhammed, the Chief Imam of Limawa Jumat
mosque in Kumbotso Local government Area of the state.
Muhammed’s sack is with immediate effect.
Muhammed was accused of flouting the monarch’s instructions on moon sighting and the eventual Eid prayer at the end of Ramadan fasting. The Chief Imam was said to have sighted the moon by himself and conducted his own prayer a day after that of the Emir who doubles as both traditional and spiritual head of the Emirates.
The Emir lamented that the Imam did the same thing last year and was warned against it.
Sanusi, however, said that the Chief Imam was sacked for being adamant. He added that Muhammed repeated the same action this year despite being warned against it last year.
Sanusi said he had no option but to replace him.
The sacked Imam has kept mum, refusing to comment on the matter.
