The Emir of Kano, Alhaji Ado Bayero, who died early Friday morning, was buried in the evening with thousands of people in attendance.

His remains  were buried at his ancestral  home called Nassarawa located in Nassarawa Local Government Area of the state.  The place also has the reputation of being the last resting place of five previous emirs.

Ado Bayero was buried around 5pm with dignitaries, including the Vice President Namadi Sambo; a former Vice Presideent Atiku Abubakar, a former military head of state, General Muhammed Buhari and several others in attendance.

However, the state governor, Dr. Rabiu Kwankwaso, could not attend the burial ceremony  because he was out of the state when the emir died.

However, his deputy, Dr. Abdullahi Ganduje, represented him at the ceremony.

Other notable persons from Kano State who  witnessed the burial ceremony were, a former state governor, Malam Ibrahim Shekarau; Malam Sagir Takai, former governorship candidate of the defunct All Nigeria People Party, (ANPP).
