Sanusi, El-Rufai Leaves Awe after Court Ruling

Dethroned Emir of Kano and former governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Muhammad Sanusi II, has left Awe, Nasarawa State, where he has been staying after he was barred from Kano on Monday.

Sanusi who was in company of the Governor of Kaduna State,  Nasir El-Rufai,  left Awe at about 4:27 p.m. after leading the Friday congregational prayers at the Awe Central Mosque.

During the prayer session,  the former Emir urged Muslims to take whatever situation they found themselves in, as their destiny.

The former CBN governor also encouraged the faithful to always live with the fear of God and accept whatever predicament that befell them in good faith, and prayed for the peace and development of the country.

According to News Agency of Nigeria,  Hajiya Saudatu Hussain, the aged mother of the Emir, had also visited Awe on Friday morning, to meet her son.

Efforts by news men to confirm Sanusi’s destination did not yield fruits, but an authoritative source told NAN that the former monarch left Awe “to enjoy his freedom”.

Recall that a Federal High Court in Abuja gave an odrer directing his immediate release from confinement early of Friday.
