Governor El-Rufai visits dethroned Sanusi in exile
Kaduna State Governor, Mallam Nasiru El-Rufai, has visited the former Emir of Kano, Muhammad Sanusi at Awe in Nasarawa State. Sanusi now resides in Awe following his dethronement by the Kano State Government.
In a similar development, a Federal High Court sitting in Abuja granted an interim order releasing Sanusi from detention. In an application marked FHC/ABJ/CS/357/2020, Sanusi prayed the court to order his release from “the detention and or confinement of the respondents and to restore his rights to human dignity, personal liberty, freedom of association and movement in Nigeria, (apart from Kano State) pending the hearing and determination of the applicant’s originating summons.”
Respondents to the application filed by Sanusi’s legal team led by Lateef Fagbemi SAN are Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Muhammed Adamu; the Director-General of the Department of State Service (DSS), Yusuf Bichi; the Attorney-General of Kano State, Ibrahim Muktar, and the Attorney-General of the Federation (AGF), Abubakar Malami (SAN)
