The Fulani sacked all the Hausa states , decapitated their leadership and replaced them with Fulani Kings ( Emirs) – using religious reformation as excuse and better life as the campaign slogan

The only exception is Alhaji Auwal Ibrahim – Sarkin Zazzau a Suleija who doubles as the only remaining Hausa Emir.

When the Fulani sacked Zaria during the Jihad, his forebears beat a tactical retreat and settled amongst the Gwari where they took the Royal title – Sarkin Zazzau a Suleija which means The Kings of Zaria ruling from Suleija.

That is how the only remaining Hausa royal family managed to retain their throne.
