A video has emerged online showing the moment former Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi, was escorted out of the palace after he was dethroned by Governor Abdullahi Ganduje-led Government.
KanyiDaily had reported that Sanusi was dethroned on Monday, March 9, 2020, over alleged disrespect to the office of the state governor and other government agencies.
Aminu Ado Bayero, one of the sons of late Emir, Ado Bayero, was subsequently named as Sanusi’s replacement and the 15th Emir of the State.
Until his appointment by the state government, Aminu Ado Bayero was the Emir of Bichi, one of the four New Emirs created by the Ganduje administration.
Sanusi, after his removal, was arrested and escorted out of the palace amid heavy security.
His current location is believed to be in Nasarawa State, where he will spend the rest of his life in exile.
