Sultan Muhammadu Tambari bn Muhammadu Maiturare was raised in good manners by his great father and Islamic scholars. Thus, he was man, energetic, powerful, audacious, and upholder of his views. He ascended the Sultanate throne of Sokoto after his father Muhammadu Maiturare Gwadabawa amids vehement opposition from princes and some council members in 1924. On ascending the throne he tried to kept his ideas counted and ensured the removal of many officials who he considered unloyal and could negate his administration. The sequel of his ascension and his love to regain full control of the Sultanate administration, his insistence of following true Shariah in Islamic courts, his altercations with British officer,intrigues plotted by " bad men"; had incurred the chagrin of British leading his to his removal. Some false allegations were labelled against him to remove him. Therewith, right to fair hearing was denied to him, and the investigative panel led by Woodhouse carried an investigation marred with gross irregularities to justified for his removal. Previous studies had revealed that, removal of Tambari was unjustifiable and carried out with ulterior motives. Allegations levelled against him were fables, which even if found guilty could not called for removal.
