The Kano State Government has denied sending Muhammed Sanusi, the dethroned Emir of Kano, on exile, as widely reported by newspapers.
The Attorney-General of Kano State, Ibrahim Muktar, disclosed that there is no paragraph in Sanusi’s sack letter, that talked about banishment.
Mr. Muktar made this known while speaking on Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily programme, on Wednesday, which was monitored by Page 36’s Correspondent.
“If you listen to the Secretary to the State Government, when he was addressing the Press on the issue of the removal of the Emir from Office, there was nowhere he stated that the Emir was banished from Kano State.
“So, the decision of the government when the Emir was removed on Monday, was that he was removed from Office, and a new one appointed. The issue of banishment was not part of the decision of the Kano State Government”, he clearly stated.
Sanusi had left Kano State on Monday, after his forceful eviction from the Palace. He arrived in Nasarawa State, on Tuesday.
