Photos: Man Arrested For Impersonating Emir Sanusi With A Verified Instagram Page

A 20-year-old man has been arrested by the Kano State police command for impersonating the Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II online.

 The young man who is very active on social media pretended to be the Emir Sanusi of Kano on Instagram with 262,000 followers and he uses the verified Instagram page to deceive members of the public.

The monarch last year denied running an Instagram page which a lot of Nigerians were following.

In a statement released by his media aide, Alhaji Munir Sanusi, he said he never authorized anyone to open Instagram, Facebook, Twitter or any other social media accounts.

However, after many months of the manhunt, the impersonator was arrested and is currently cooling his heels in the state police command. He will be arraigned in court for impersonation.
