The dethroned Emir of Kano Muhammad Sanusi II has been expelled from Kano state and exiled to Nasarrawa state.
LagosTimes reports that security operatives stormed Sanusi residence and subsequently harried him out of the ancient city amidst tight security.
It was gathered that the security operatives are heading to Nassarawa state where Sanusi will spend the rest of his life in asylum.
Before his dethronement he was said to have been put under house arrest as his residence was besieged by heavy security personnel of DSS, Police and Military.
The arrest was after the security operatives sealed off the Palace.
According to an insider who is familiar with unfolding events in the state, Governor Abdullahi Ganduje, who is presiding over an emergency Executive Council Meeting, is set to announce the new emir any moment.
The Nation reliably gathered that the names of some powerful aristocrats with direct lineage to the Palace were tabled before Ganduje, who has the constitutional powers to appoint an Emir.
