Dethroned Emir of Kano arrives in Nasarawa

The dethroned Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II, arrived in Awe local government area of Nasarawa State on Tuesday.

Sanusi reportedly arrived in the community a few minutes before 7:00 p.m.

The monarch was initially taken to Loko local government area of the state following his banishment by the state government but was transferred to Awe over reported lack of social amenities in the area.

The Kano State Government on Monday dethroned the Emir for allegedly disrespecting Governor Abdullahi Ganduje and other constituted authorities in the state.
