Dethronement: Sanusi Now In Nasarawa

Former Emir of Kano, Sanusi


The former Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II, has now arrived in Nasarawa state where he has been exiled.

He arrived in Loko Development Area in Nasarawa Local Government Area of the state at about 2:3am on Tuesday, Channels TV reported.

This followed Sanusi’s departure from the Malam Aminu International Airport, hours after the Secretary to the Kano State Government, Usman Alhaji, announced that he had been removed as the Emir of Kano.

Alhaji who spoke at the State Executive Council meeting on Monday revealed that the state government took the decision over Sanusi’s consistent refusal to abide by instructions given to him

The removal is said to be in line with the recommendation of the Kano State Public Complaint and Anti-Corruption Commission which summoned the deposed emir.

In documents obtained by newsmen and signed by the chairman of the commission, Sanusi was accused of obstructing the investigation of the commission.

The commission had asked the traditional ruler to respond to a petition accusing him of selling lands belonging to the Kano Emirate to the tune of N2 billion.

Sanusi had, however, secured a restriction order from a court to stop the commission from investigating him.
