The Sarkin Sudan Shinkafi said the “Emir of Shinkafi had appointed their replacement and dismissed insinuations that the emir was compelled to appoint Femi Fani-Kayode as Sardaunan Shinkafi by the powers that be.
“It is the decision of the emirate council to appoint whoever it wishes.
“Therefore the appointment of Fani-Kayode as Sadaukin Shinkafi has nothing to do with anyone. The emirate has since moved on,” he said.
