Yahoo boys have created different social media accounts in the name of the emir.

In a statement on Friday, Sanusi said he received series of calls and inquiries on some purported malicious and fake social media accounts in his name.

He told reporters that he never authorised any person or organisation to open an Instagram, Facebook, Twitter or any other social media account nor post any message on his behalf.

The traditional ruler spoke through his Chief of Staff, Munir Sanusi.

Sanusi noted that the current development is coming after an earlier advertorial disclaiming fake Facebook and Twitter accounts created in the name of his Highness.

He lamented that the fraudsters have remained unrelenting in their nefarious acts.

“We have officially notified the administrators of the fake Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and other social media accounts requesting that the accounts be closed immediately in addition to detecting the identity of the culprits.

“It is important to reiterate that the Emir of Kano, Alhaji Muhammadu Sanusi II, has persistently stood for the unity of the nation regardless of its diversity.

“He always emphasises the need for tolerance and respect for one another,” the emir’s representative stated.

Sanusi gave the assurance that his principles as a traditional ruler and religious leader would be meticulously safeguarded. He warned the fraudsters to desist or face the consequences of their actions.
