The close aide of the former Emir, Dr Suleiman Shinkafi explained that the Ex-Emir would be in Kaduna for a week to receive visitors who had wanted to visit him in Lagos.

He said, “Since his dethronement, many people had wanted to visit him in Lagos. But the monarch decided to relieve them from the stress of travelling as far as Lagos.”

Shinkafi added that the deposed monarch will later visit Sokoto to greet Sultan Muhammad Abubakar Sa’ad, and thereafter move to Azare in Katagum Local Government Area of Bauchi State, where his late grandfather, Muhammad Sanusi I, stayed when he was deposed by the late Sardauna of Sokoto, Sir Ahmadu Bello.

Earlier, Sanusi who was visiting Kaduna for the time since his dethronement was received at the Airport were his admirers had gathered to welcome him.

The last time he was in Kaduna was during the celebration of the 60th birthday anniversary of Governor El-Rufai.
