Five Key points from Sanusi Lamido’s lawyers, led by A. B. Mahmoud (SAN)

  1. The former Emir of Kano is under arrest. When the police picked him away, against his will, Sanusi’s lawyer asked for an arrest warrant but the police offered none.
  2. The Emir has been separated from his family. His Children and wives were taken to Lagos, while the ex Emir was, against his wish, taken to a community in Nasarawa state.
  3. When the commissioner of police came to take Sanusi away, he (Sanusi) made it clear that he wants to go with his family to Lagos, where he has lived most of his life. But the police, citing instruction from above, refused. They forcefully took him to Nasarawa state.
  4. The former Emir doesn’t know his exact location in Nasarawa state. Upon arriving by flight in the State last night, he was driven by road for about 7 hours arriving at the detention facility kept for him around 2:30 am.
  5. The lawyers of the ex Emir say they do not have his instructions to challenge his Dethronement ,but that he has asked them, through his chief of staff, to challenge his ‘exile’ and detention in court.
