Kaduna Governor, Malam Nasir El-Rufai, has said former Emir of Kano, Lamido Sanusi II, would head to Lagos from Abuja.
El-Rufai visited Sanusi in Awe, Nasarawa State, and both drove back to Abuja, a statement from the governor’s Special Adviser on Media and Communication, Muyiwa Adekeye, said.
According to the statement, the governor, who drove from Abuja to Awe town, met Sanusi in high spirits, demonstrating his usual calm, poise, and regal-bearing” despite his removal from office.
El-Rufai had arrived Awe shortly after a Federal High Court sitting in Abuja granted an interim order releasing Sanusi from detention.
Sanusi and El-Rufai attended Friday prayers together in Awe, where the former Emir led the Jumma’at prayers and “hundreds of well-wishers lined up the road of Awe to hail His Highness on his way to the Mosque and back to his residence,” the statement.
It further said the two men rode in Governor El Rufai’s car to Abuja, from where Sanusi II would proceed to Lagos.
