Deposed Kano Emir Muhammad Sanusi 11 has been relocated to Awe town by the Nasarawa State Government.

The relocation was carried out in an helicopter amid tight security.

There had been no official word on why he was relocated.

Old story

Dethroned Emir of Kano, Alhaji Muhammad Sanusi, has arrived Loko, a town in Nasarawa State, to which he was banished, the News Agency of Nigeria is reporting.

A NAN correspondent reports that the dethroned monarch arrived his new abode around 3am on Tuesday.

Alhaji Abubakar Ahmed Sabo, the traditional ruler of Loko, who confirmed the development, said Sanusi arrived his palace “around 3am on March 10”.

The first class traditional ruler, however, said the press would not be allowed to interview the dethroned emir.

He said: “Yes, Emir Sanusi is in my palace.
“He arrived this morning around 3am, but no one will be allowed to speak with him.”

NAN recalls that the Kano State Government dethroned Sanusi on March 9.
The government hinged its action on the former Central Bank of Nigeria Governor’s “outright disregard for the state government and Kano Emirate’s traditional norms”.
