The traditional ruler of Loko, Abubakar Ahmed Sabo, who confirmed the development, said that Sanusi arrived at his palace at 3 a.m. on Tuesday.
Sabo, however, said that the press would not be allowed to interview the dethroned emir.
“Yes, Emir Sanusi is in my palace. He arrived this morning around 3 a.m., but no one will be allowed to speak with him,” he said.
The Kano State Government dethroned Sanusi on Monday, accusing the former governor of Central Bank of “outright disregard for the state government and Kano Emirate’s traditional norms”.
