Dethroned Emir, Muhammadu Sanusi II has been banished from the ancient city of Kano by the State Government.

He was sacked on Monday by the Kano State Government that immediately installed Alhaji Aminu Ado Bayero as the new Emir.

Sanusi was banished to Loko in Nasarawa State on exile.

The former emir was being sent on asylum amidst tight security.

Sanusi’s removal was said to be in line with the recommendation of the Kano State Public Complaint and Anti-Corruption Commission which summoned the Emir.

According to a documents obtained by Channels Television and signed by the chairman of the commission, Sanusi was accused of obstructing the investigation of the Commission.
