Dethroned Sanusi ‘Heads’ To Court, Issues 24-hour Ultimatum For His Release

Deposed Emir of Kano, Muhammad Sanusi II, on Tuesday, issued a 24-hour ultimatum for his release.

Sanusi’s lawyer, Abubakar Mahmoud (SAN), made this known during a press conference in his chamber.

Mahmoud said the Kano State Government would be sued if Sanusi is not released within 24 hours.

He, therefore, called on the Inspector-General of Police, the Director-General of the Department of State Services, and the Attorney-General of the Federation and the Minister of Justice to ensure the immediate release of the former Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria.

Mahmoud described Sanusi’s detention as illegal and unconstitutional.

He argued that the Kano State Emirate Council Law recently enacted by the Government does not give the State Executive Council or the Governor the powers to unilaterally remove the Emir.
