Dethroned Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II 
The dethroned Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II, has taken a legal action against the Kano state government over his banishment and illegal arrest.

His lawyer, A. B Mahmoud has disclosed this on Tuesday.


The lawyer said Sanusi was not served any arrest warrant when he was whisked out of the Emir’s Palace on Monday.

He told a press conference that the Kano Emirate Court Law 2019 has not in any way empowered the Kano State Executive Council to banish the emir.




He said, "We have the directives of the emir through his chief of staff, Munir Sanusi to challenge the legality of dethronement and banish of the emir.

"We have to receive any directives to challenge his dethronement, but we have been directed to challenge his banishment.

Mahmoud added that the dethronement and banishment of Sanusi was a total violation of his rights.



He called on the Inspector General of Police and Director General of the Department of the State Security to “immediately and unconditionally release His Highness.”
