The Kano State Government has denied sending Muhammed Sanusi, dethroned Emir of Kano on exile as widely reported by newspapers.
The Attorney-General of the State, Ibrahim Muktar, disclosed that there is no paragraph in Sanusi’s sack letter that talked about banishment.
Mr Muktar made this known while speaking on Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily programme on Wednesday.
“If you listen to the Secretary to the State Government when he was addressing the press on the issue of the removal of the emir from office, there was nowhere he stated that the emir was banished from Kano State.”
“So, the decision of the government when the emir was removed on Monday was that he was removed from office and a new one appointed. The issue of banishment was not part of the decision of the Kano State Government”, he said.
Sanusi had left Kano State since Monday after his forceful eviction from the Palace. He arrived in Nasarawa on Tuesday.
