Reports says the chartered aircraft that flew Governor Rotimi Amaechi of Rivers State to Kano State on a condolence visit to Governor Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso has been grounded, a state official said.
The state commissioner for home affairs, Comrade Aminu Abdulsalam Gwarzo, told sympathisers who came to condole with Kwankwaso over the death of former emir of Kano, Alhaji Ado Bayero, at the government house, Kano, that the aircraft was grounded on “orders from above”.
The aircraft, which also conveyed the former governor of Gombe State, Senator Danjuma Goje, and the former chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Abubakar Kawu Baraje, was said to have been grounded at the Mallam Aminu Kano International Airport, Kano, Sunday evening.
Their visit also coincided with the announcement of former governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Mallam Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, as the new emir.
