He said: “Before the insurgency, dozens of articulated vehicles, from different states in the north trooped into Kano to buy goods.

“The activities of the insurgents have really paralysed the socio-economic activities of the state.”

He promised to restore the city’s commercial glory by crushing the insurgency.

The Emir, in his reaction, assured the president of the support of the emirate council and promised to give useful advice to the president.

Meanwhile, NAIJ.com previously reported that the Nigerian Police insisted Moses Motoni, an allegedly detained Budgit staff, is alive and was not arrested by SARS operatives.

A former minister of Education, Oby Ezekwesili, had earlier called on the presidency to direct the inspector general of police to immediately release the detained Budgit staff. The Police Force has, however, denied reports that some officers of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) arrested Moses Motoni.
