Sanusi Arrives Lagos From Nasarawa


Former Emir of Kano, Muhammad Sanusi II, has arrived Lagos from Nasarawa.

A spokesman for Governor El-Rufai said Sanusi’s plane left the Nnamdi Azikwe International Airport in Abuja at about 10:47pm.

Sanusi departure comes as Justice Anwuli Chikere of a federal high court sitting in Abuja granted an interim order releasing him from his “detention” in Awe, Nasarawa.

Justice Anwuli Chikere granted the order in line with the prayers on the exparte motion filed on behalf of the deposed Emir by Lateef Fagbemi SAN.

On Monday, Sanusi was dethroned as Emir by the Kano state government, which accused him of insubordination, though Sanusi’s supporters believe his sack was motivated by his cold relationship with Governor Abdullahi Ganduje.
