The deposed Emir of Kano, Muhammad Sanusi II, has left Awe, Nasarawa State, his abode after he left Kano on Monday.

Sanusi left Awe at about 4:27 p.m., in the company of Governor Nasir el-Rufai of Kaduna State, after observing the Friday congregational prayers.

Mallam El-Rufai was reported to have said he was taking him to Lagos and from there to Abuja. He did not say where Sanusi would go from Abuja.

Sanusi had led the Friday Juma’at prayer at the Awe Central Mosque, where he admonished Muslims to take whatever situation they found themselves in, as destiny.

He encouraged the faithful to always live with the fear of God and accept whatever predicament that befell them in good faith and prayed for the peace and development of the country.

Hajiya Saudatu Hussain, the aged mother of the Emir, had arrived Awe on Friday morning, to meet her son.

Efforts to confirm Sanusi’s destination did not yield fruits, but an authoritative source said that the former monarch left Awe “to enjoy his freedom”.

“You remember that a Federal High Court in Abuja gave an order directing his immediate release from confinement. The man is now free and should be allowed to be free,” he said.

Kano government had dethroned Sanusi on Monday, March 9, over alleged open disregard to the state government and disrespect for the traditions of the Kano Emirate.

He was initially taken to Loko in Nasarawa State, before he was moved to Awe, another town in the north-central state, on Wednesday
