The Kano State traditional institution has again been thrown into a mourning state with the death of another traditional ruler, Dan Iyan Kano, Alhaji Yusuf Bayero.
Earlier last week, the ancient traditional institution in Kano lost the former Emir of Rano, Alhaji Tafida Abubakar Ila II and another traditional ruler, the Jarman Kano, Professor Isa Hashim.
A source who confirmed the death said Bayero died on Saturday.
Before his death, Bayero was the district head of Dawakin Kudu Local Government Area.
He was also said to be the first district head of Ajingi Local Government Area in the history of Kano state.
A call to the Special Adviser to Governor Abdullahi Ganduje on Emirate Councils, Tijjani Mailafiya Sanka to confirm the death proved abortive as he was not responding to calls put to his phone.
Similarly, the leader of bodyguards in the Kano Emirate (Sarkin Dogaran Kano), Muhammad Lawal Bala was also confirmed dead.
