Why We Used Security Men To Evacuate Sanusi From Palace-Kano Government Speaks




An explanation to the presence of heavy security operatives during the evacuation of ex-Emir of Kano, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi from the Kano Palace has been explained.

According to Salihu Tanko-Yakasai, Governor Abdullahi Ganduje’s media aide; Sanusi had to be forced out of the palace by security operatives after being dethroned by his principal.

In an interview with Channels Television on Tuesday, March 10, the Director-General of Media and Communications for Kano state government disclosed that the dethroned Emir would have been treated better if he wasn’t reluctant to leave the palace.

Salihu said;

“He was offered to be handled better, I think they wanted it to be a quiet thing. That is the standard, that is the law. A deposed emir has to leave the state. That is what has happened in the past in situations.

“I don’t know what happened in the palace that caused the delay. The emir wasn’t, at the initial stage, willing to leave the palace. That was why we saw involvement of the security forces. If he had gone willingly, I don’t think we would have seen such reactions from the security personnel.”


This is coming amid news of the deposed Emir being relocated from Loko where he was expected to stay after being banished, to Awe in Nasarawa State. The reason for the change in location is not clear at the time of filing this report.
