Malami: I’m not involved in Sanusi’s dethronement
Attorney -General of the Federation (AGF), Abubakar Malami.has disclosed that he has no hand in the dethronement and detention of Muhammadu Sanusi.
Sanusi, who was dethroned as emir of Kano, was confined to Awe in Nasarawa state until a federal high court in Abuja ordered his release, paving the way for him to move to Lagos, on Friday.
An aide of the deposed monarch had accused Malami of ordering the detention of the former first-class monarch.
In a statement on Sunday, Special Assistant on media and public relations Umar Gwandu to Malami, said the minister will not comment further on the development since it is already in court.
He said, “The issue of who does what over the dethronement saga has been effectively submitted for judicial determination. The matter is consequently subjudice.
”And I will not comment one way or the other over a matter that is pending before the court.”
