Sanusi Heads To Court, Seeks Release From Detention




The deposed Emir of kano, Sanusi Muhammadu Sanusi, has filed a suit before an Abuja federal high court seeking an order for his release from detention.

Following his removal from the Kano State Emirate, the dethroned emir was taken to confinement in Awe local government in Nasarawa State.

In the suit filed at the Abuja high court, Sanusi requested an interim order releasing him “from the detention and or confinement of the respondents and restoring the applicant’s rights to human dignity, personal liberty, freedom of association and movement in Nigeria, (apart from Kano State) pending the hearing and determination of the applicant’s originating summons.”

The respondents in the suit marked FHC/ABJ/CS/357/2020 are, Mohammed Adamu, Inspector-General of Police; Yusuf Bichi, Director-General of the Department of State Service DSS; Ibrahim Mukhtar, Attorney-General of Kano and Abubakar Malami, Attorney-General of the Federation.

Sanusi accused the respondents of breaching his fundamental human rights and asked the court to grant him permission to effect service of court processes on all the respondents by substituted means through any staff or officer within their premises.

The suit reads: “Considering the status of the respondents, It would be difficult to effect personal service on the 1, 2, and 3 respondents unless this application is granted.

“There is an urgent need to grant this application so that service can be promptly effected on the 1, 2 and 3 respondents.

“Applicant’s fundamental right to life, human dignity, personal liberty and movement are seriously under challenge and continually being breached by the respondents.

“Exceptional hardship shall be caused to the applicant before the service and hearing of the originating motion for the enforcement of his fundamental right.”
