The Kano State Government has denied the reports that the deposed Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II, has been banished from the state.
The Attorney-General and Commissioner of Justice in the state, Ibrahim Muktar, stated this during his appearance on Channels Television, on Wednesday.
According to him, “You see, 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 said the emir was even banished from Kano State.
“So, the decision of the government was (that) the emir … as of Monday was removed from office and a new emir was appointed.
“The issue of banishment was not part of the decision of the Kano State Government.”
