HRM Sanusi Lamido Sanusi arrived Lagos last night following his release from Awe, Nassarawa State where he was banished to by the government after his dethronement.
It is reported that the plane that brought the former Emir to Lagos landed late Friday night at the Murtala Muhammed Airport. Unfortunately, no journalist was given access to the Quits Aviation Terminal where the plane landed. He was seen being led quickly away under tight security provided by his aides and additional as of press time his Lagos address was not known.
A Federal High Court ordered his immediate release from confinement on Friday morning. Sanusi left Awe at about 4:27 pm in company with Governor Nasir el-Rufai of Kaduna State after observing the Friday congregational prayer.
He flew to Lagos last night where he is said to have chosen as his post-emirship base. Sanusi led the Friday Juma’at prayer at the Awe Central Mosque, where he admonished Muslim faithful to take whatever situation they found themselves as destiny.
Sanusi, in his sermon, encouraged the faithful to always live with the fear of God and accept whatever predicament that befell them in good faith.
He prayed for the peace and development of the country. The News Agency of Ni- Nigeria (NAN) also reported that Hajiya Saudatu Hus- sain, the aged mother of the Emir also visited him in Awe on Friday.
He is reported to have decided to situate in Lagos and continue his life and his family from there.
