The Director-General, Media and Communications, Kano State Government, Salihu Yakasai has confirmed that the dethroned Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II, has gone into exile and he won’t have access to visitors.
After his dethronement, Sanusi was escorted out of the palace with heavy security.
He has been taken to an undisclosed remote location in Nasarawa state where he will spend the rest of his life in exile.
Salihu Yakasai, in a tweet on Monday, said Sanusi would be put under house arrest and won’t have access to any visitor during his exile. He wrote:
“Clearly, some people are ignorant of how dethronement works. When an Emir is dethroned, he is sent on exile in a remote location and will basically be under house arrest and won’t have access to visitors. A person under these circumstances will be after his freedom and not the next election.”
