Emir Sacks Jumat Mosque Imam

The Emir of Kano, Mallam Muhammad Sanusi II, on Friday in Kano, ordered the removal of Malam Salihu Muhammed, the Chief Imam of Limawa Jumat mosque in Kumbotso Local Government Area of the state.

The removal is with immediate effect.

According to The Punch: Muhammed was accused of allegedly acting contrary to the monarch’s instructions on moon sighting and the eventual Eid prayer at the end of Ramadan fasting by sighting the moon by himself and conducting his own Eid prayer a day after that of the Emir.

Sanusi lamented that the Imam did the same thing last year and was warned against it.

He, however, noted that since the Imam remained adamant and repeated the same action this year,  he had no option than to replace him.

But when contacted, the ousted Imam declined comment on the matter.
