Emir of Kano, Alhaji Muhammadu Sanusi II

Nasarawa State Governor Abdullahi Sule and Emir of Lafia, Alhaji Sidi Bage, have visited deposed Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi, in his modest bungalow in Awe.

The Governor arrived 30 minutes after the traditional ruler, a retired justice of the Appeal Court.

Governor Sule arrived at around 5 pm and is at present meeting with Sanusi under tight security.

The visits by two prominent Nasarawa sons debunked speculations on the social media, that the emir had been moved out of Awe to Lagos.

The Emir’s visitors are being screened with those who are unable to successfully convince the security operatives on their mission being turned back.
