Governor of Kaduna state, Nasir el-Rufai, says Muhammadu Sanusi II, the deposed Emir of Kano, can go anywhere he likes, including Kano.
After his dethronement, there were reports that he would not be allowed into Kano for at least three months.
But fielding questions from journalists in Awe, Nasarawa state, on Friday, the governor, who visited the dethroned emir, said a Federal Capital Territory High Court has ruled that Sanusi could go anywhere.
“The High Court ruled that he can go anywhere, including Kano, but I think he wants to go to Lagos to reunite with his family,” el-Rufai said.
El-Rufai was said to have thereafter left with Sanusi in the same car for Abuja, enroute to Lagos.
