As Kano emirate tussle lingers, traditional and official flag has been hoisted at the Nassarawa mini palace where the 15th Emir of Kano, Aminu Ado Bayero currently occupies.

Daily Trust reports that the flag stands as a symbol of authority and signifies the presence of an emir once raised.

It is often raised every day by 6am and taken down by 6pm and remains down when the emir is officially outside the palace or travels.

It was observed that the flag was set for hoisting on Wednesday morning when the iron rod was installed but the flag was brought later in the evening and it was raised by 6am on Thursday.

Daily Trust reports that as the two embattled emirs, Aminu Ado Bayero and Muhammadu Sanusi II continue to occupy the two palaces laying claim to the Kano Emirate throne, they keep observing and exercising all other traditional and royal rites.
