The deposed Emir of Kano, Danusi Lamido Sanusi, who was banished to Loko in Nasarawa local government area of Nasarawa State, has been relocated to Awe town, Awe local government area of the state.
Briefing newsmen shortly after a police helicopter ferried the former emir away at about 1:45pm from Loko secondary school playground on Tuesday, the Mai Loko, HRH Abubakar Ahmed Sabo, said the move became necessary owing to the fact that Loko lacks access road, any source of portable water and electricity, among others.
He was emphatic that the decision to relocate former emir Sanusi had nothing to do with the prevailing insecurity in the area.
The monarch urged traditional ruler across the country to always abide by the constituted authority so as not to end like the dethroned Emir of Kano.
The Emir of Loko, who is also a first class Paramount ruler, said: “Here in Loko, we are hospitable people as such we received the dethroned Emir of Kano warmly as it should be.
‘’In fact, my people are not happy as regards relocating the said dethroned Emir to Awe.
‘’The authority concerned said they want to relocate him owing to the fact that we lack so many social amenities here”.
He continued: “The executive arm of government has tenure of office while we the traditional institution doesn’t have.
