Deposed Emir’s Aide Indicts Malami Over Confinement In Nasarawa



Abubakar Malami

A Chief of Staff to the deposed emir of Kano, Munir Sanusi, Dam Buram Kano has blamed the Attorney-General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami, for the confinement of the former emir in Nasarawa.

Munir had filed an affidavit in support of the suit by the deposed emir, stating that Sanusi was detained on the orders of Malami and the Kano State Attorney-General, Ibrahim Muktar, who were respondents in the suit filed by the deposed emir.

He said the deposed emir had informed Habu Ahmadu, the state’s commissioner of police, of his intention to fly with his family members to Lagos but his request was dismissed.

He stated, “I know for a fact that the CP (Commissioner of Police) refused the applicant’s requests for protection and to carry his family with him to Lagos and stated that he had no such instructions from above, but instead directed that the applicant be flown to Abuja and then taken to Nasarawa state. 

“In order not to jeopardise his safety or the safety of any member of his family or indeed other persons around, the applicant cooperated and proceeded in the vehicles provided by officers under the command of the respondents.

“The said commissioner of police, along with other officers under the command of the respondents, harassed and rushed the applicant out of the emir palace, Kano, without letting him take any personal belongings and personal effects, along with him as they took him into their waiting vehicles.

“The applicant was then taken in company with loads of armed men, being officers under the command of the respondents, to the Nigerian air force base in Kano where he was put in a private aircraft to Abuja and departed Kano at about 6.40pm.

“The applicant was separated from his family who were also carried out of the palace.

“Upon arrival at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja, he was conveyed first to Lafia, then to Loko area of Nasarawa State, after being driven for about seven hours in the dead of the night.

“On March 10, 2020, he was taken back to Lafia and from there to Awe in Nasarawa state.”

Following an Abuja High Court order granting his release from confinement, Sanusi on Friday departed Awe Community to Lagos.
