Abdullahi Sule, the governor of Nasarawa state, has visited Muhammad Sanusi II, the deposed emir of Kano in Awe where the former emir has been kept since his dethronement by the Kano state government.
The Cable reports that Governor Sule visited the former governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria around 5pm on Thursday, March 12.

Meanwhile, days after the former emir of Kano Muhammadu Sanusi II was removed from office by Governor Abdullahi Ganduje, his expansive library catalogued with over 40,000 books and journals has been successfully evacuated from the palace.
Mujtaba Abba, the dethroned Emir’s principal private secretary, confirmed this in an interview with Daily Nigerian.
He noted that the books were taken to a safe location within the ancient city of Kano state. Abba said: “High Highness’ greatest concern was the fate of his books, so my sister and I stayed behind to ensure that we evacuated all the books. It took us sleepless nights to accomplish the task in two days.
