SWITZERLAND, MARCH 10 – The deposed Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II, is to live in Loko town of Nasarawa Local Government in Nasarawa State, according to media sources
According to Daily trust newspaper, a source who preferred anonymity told its correspondent that, “Actually, the deposed emir was scheduled to be exiled from Kano to Opanda town in Toto Local Government but there was a change of decision at the last minute.
“Notable Nigerians like the Emir of Lafia, Justice Sidi Bage (rtd) personally met Governor Abdullahi Sule and requested for a change of location.
Others who called the governor were Alhaji Aliko Dangote and General Aliyu Gusau amongst others,” the source said.
It was learnt that Governor Sule agreed that the deposed emir be exiled in Loko which looks better than the initial place that the former emir was to be taken to.
Loko town is inhabited by Fulani. When contacted, the chairman of Nasarawa Local Government Area, Muhammad Otto said, “I have not been informed on the exile of the deposed emir.”
It could be recalled that the deposed Emir of Gwandu in Kebbi State, Alhaji Al-Mustapha Haruna Jokola, was exiled to Obi Local Government of Nasarawa State when he was dethroned.
