Former Emir of Kano, Muhammad Sanusi II, has arrived Lagos from Nasarawa by way of Abuja.
Sanusi departed Awe in Nasarawa State with the Kaduna State Governor, Nasiru El-Rufai, on Friday.
At about 10:47pm, Sanusi’s aircraft left the Nnamdi Azikwe Worldwide Airport in Abuja, in line with a spokesman for Governor El-Rufai.
His departure comes after a Federal Excessive Court docket sitting in Abuja granted an interim order releasing Sanusi from detention in Nasarawa.
Justice Anwuli Chikere granted the order according to the prayers on the exparte movement filed on behalf of the deposed Emir by Mr. Lateef Fagbemi SAN.
The previous Emir had on Thursday approached the court docket looking for an interim order of the court docket directing his quick launch from detention.
On Monday, Sanusi was dethroned as Emir by the Kano state authorities, which accused him of insubordination.
Nonetheless, Mr Sanusi’s supporters imagine his sack was motivated by his frosty relationship with Governor Abdullahi Ganduje.
