The Scout Movement In The Northern Provinces

This picture shows Scouts of the Kano City Troop. It was the very first troop of the Northern Provinces. The youngest son of the Emir of Kano and the sons of the Chiroma of Kano were very keen scouts (Sorry I am unable to identify them in this picture).

As this was the first scout troop to be formed in Kano, the Emir allowed it to use his name; thus it was known as the “Emir of Kano’s own” Troop.
