The deposed Emir of Kano, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi has departed Awe, Nassarawa State where he was banished after dethronement.

Sanusi had earlier received Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai earlier in the day and they are reportedly leaving the town in the same vehicle.


Justice Anwuli Chikere of the Federal High Court in Abuja on Friday ordered the Police IG and the Director General of the DSS to release him from confinement.

Sanusi led the Jumat Prayer at the palace of the Emir of Awe before leaving alongside El-Rufai. They are reportedly heading to Abuja.
