The statement further asserted that the Minister was not involved in the former Emir’s banishment to Nasarawa or anywhere.
CAPITAL POST earlier reports that Sanusi Lamido Sanusi II, fingered the AG of the Federation and that of Kano State as those who ordered that he should be banished to Loko in Nasarawa state.
Sanusi also explained how he was not allowed to pick his belongings by security agents who came to whisk him away.
According to the former Emir, a friend of his provided an aircraft to fly him to Lagos after his dethronement, but Kano State Commissioner of Police insisted on a helicopter he provided to fly him to Abuja without any of his relatives.
