BEVERLY HILLS, March 10, (THEWILL) – The deposed Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II, has arrived Nasarawa State following his banishment from Kano.
He arrived in Loko Development Area in Nasarawa Local Government Area of the state at about 2:30am on Tuesday.
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.
Reports indicate that the Emir was first taken to Abuja before his final departure to Nasarawa.
His 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 and asked him 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.
