The Nasarawa State Government on Tuesday relocated the dethroned Emir of Kano, Muhammad Sanusi II, to Awe town.
Naija News reports that the sacked Emir Sanusi was taken to Loko town on Monday in a helicopter amid tight security.
There had been no official word over his relocation as at the time of filing in this report.
Recall that the Kano State government led by Governor Ganduje on Monday, March 9, dethroned Emir Sanusi.
This online news platform understands that Emir Sanusi’s dethronement followed the State Council executive meeting presided over by the Governor Ganduje.
However, a statement by Alhaji Usman Alhaji, the Secretary to the State Government, said Emir Sanusi’s dethronement was due to his “total disrespect to lawful instructions from the office of the governor and other lawful authorities”
“The Kano State Executive Council under the chairmanship of His Excellency, the governor of Kano, Dr Abdullahi Ganduje has unanimously approved the immediate removal/dethronement of the Emir of Kano Emirate, Muhammad Sanusi II,” the statement said.
