The statement urged people to desist from posting statements on social media using the emir’s name.
The Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II, has stated that he has no account on Facebook, Twitter, or any other social media.
Mr. Sanusi’s stance was contained in a statement on Thursday by the Emirate Council.
The statement, signed by the Dan Majen Kano, Munnir Sanusi, urged people to desist from posting statements on social media using the emir’s name.
Mr. Sanusi lamented that fraudsters open social media accounts in other to demean the person of the emir by posting provocative and misleading statements.
“Recently, the people operating the Facebook account announced to the public that the emir is issuing free Hajj seats to some four hundred Nigerians which is not coming from neither the emir nor the Kano emirates,” he said.
He also said a twitter handle in the name of the emir was frequently used to publish libellous statements in Mr. Sanusi’s name.
