The dethroned emir of Kano, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi II has said that, if he had wanted to reclaim his throne that will be the easiest thing to do.
Sanusi II, who was speaking on a video that went viral said that, due process were not followed when he was removed and that he easily approached court and seek for redress which he said will definitely be done.
“I was not queried. I was not given a fare hearing to defend myself. No committee set up has called me to ask questions. So all these happened so hurriedly that due process were not followed. Hence, I can reclaim my throne through the courts,” he said.
He, however, assured that he has taken the incident in good faith and will not seek for any redress in court, adding that, “Live goes on and I have decided to put all these things in the past and move on with my live.”
Recalled that, Sanusi II was earlier banished from Kano following his dethronement and was taken into confinement in Loko village before he was moved to Awe town in Nasarawa state.
He however filed a suit against the IGP, the SSS boss and AGF at the Federal High Court sitting in Abuja who subsequently granted his prayer and ordered the petitioned government officials to released him immediately.
Upon regaining his freedom, Sanusi II left Awe for Abuja in company of Kaduna state governor, Nasir el-Rufa’i who had earlier visited the deposed emir in Awe town.
Sanusi II is now living in Lagos.
