Emir Sanusi says Hausas have for decades been accommodating the Igbos without grudge, animosity and rancour.

Emir Sanusi on Monday, July 11, told the Abia state council of chiefs who paid him a courtesy visit at his palace in Kano that Hausas have for decades been accommodating the Igbos without grudge, animosity and rancour.

The Emir said all the misunderstandings, animosity and rancour between the Hausa and Igbos were the handiwork of ‘rabble-rousers’, whose intention was to cause disaffection in a cosmopolitan city.

However, Sanusi’s narrative about the cordial relationship between Igbos and Housas has generated a backlash from Igbos who accused the Emir of fueling the maltreatment of Igbos in the north.
