According to Daily Trust, the 15th Emir of Kano later moved into the palace in Nassarawa, minutes after the state Govenor, Abba Yusuf ordered his arrest for allegedly creating tension in the state and attempting to forcefully return to the palace after his dethronment.

It disclosed that the 16th Emir, Muhammadu Sanusi II has taken over the Gidan Rumfa palace following his reinstatement by Governor Abba Yusuf on Friday.
