Attorney-General Of The Federation, Abubakar Malami, Speaks On The Dethronement Of Sanusi II, As The Emir Of Kano

The Attorney-General of the Federation, AGF, and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, has on Sunday, said that he is not connected with the dethronement of the former Emir of Kano, Muhammad Sanusi II, and his subsequent banishment to Nasarawa State.

This was contained in a statement made available on Sunday, by the AGF’s Special Assistant on Media and Public Relations, Umar Gwandu.

Sanusi was deposed, following a resolution of the Kano State Executive Council, on March 9, on allegations of insubordination.

The deposed Emir, had on March 12, filed a suit at the Federal High Court, in Abuja, against the Inspector-General of Police, IGP, Mohammed Adamu; Director-General of the Department of State Security Services, DSS, Yusuf Bichi; Attorney-General of Kano State, and the AGF.

They are the first, second, third, and fourth Respondents in the suit, respectively.

Sanusi regained his freedom on Friday, on the order of the court, and has left Awe, in Nasarawa, where he was banished to, for Lagos.

However, the statement on Sunday, said that the “Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, SAN, was not in any way connected with the dethronement of the former Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II, and his subsequent banishment to Nasarawa State.

“The issue of who does what over the dethronement saga, has been effectively submitted for judicial determination. The matter is consequently subjudice.”

The Minister added that he would not comment over a matter that is already before a court of law.

“Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice will not comment one way or the other, over a matter that is pending before the court.”
