Court Orders Kano State To Apologise To Sanusi, Pay Him N10m
The Federal High Court sitting in Abuja, on Tuesday, ordered Kano state government to tender an apology to the dethroned Emir of Kano, Lamido Sanusi, in two national dailies.
The court, in a judgement that was delivered by Justice Anwuli Chikere, held that Sanusi’s forceful banishment from the state after his dethronement, was illegal, unconstitutional and in gross violation of his fundamental human rights.
Consequently, it awarded damages against Kano state, in favour of the deposed Emir, to the tune of N10million.
