Time Is Ripe To Bring Sanusi To Justice For Beheading Akaluka —Fani-Kayode
Former Minister of Aviation, Mr. Femi Fani-Kayode has called for the prosecution of the deposed Emir of Kano, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi over the murder of Gideon Akaluka, who was butchered by a Kano mob in the mid-1990’s for desecrating the Koran.
Mr. Fani-Kayode, taking to his Twitter handle, stressed that the time is ripe for the deposed Sanusi, who beheaded Akaluka, to be brought to justice for murder.
The former Minister went down memory lane and recounted how Akaluka was butchered by a Kano mob in the mid-1900’s for desecrating the Koran.
He recalled that the deposed one led that crowd, severed his head from his body and paraded it on a long pole on the streets of Kano while the crowd cheered.
“Now that he that beheaded Gideon Akaluka has been deposed it is time to bring him to justice for murder.
“Akaluka was butchered by a Kano mob in the mid-1900’s for desecrating the Koran. The deposed one led that crowd, severed his head from his body ¶ded it on a long pole.
“He was hidden from Abacha in a Sokoto prison for two years after committing this heinous crime whilst all his co-conspirators were summarily executed by the security forces.
“A prominent banker whose son has been convicted of Islamist terrorism in America intervened on his behalf, begged Abacha and consequently he was later set free and allowed to go down south and into banking.”
Assuring that the story will never be forgotten nor swept away, he added: “The full edition of this story will be told on another day.”
ElombahNews had earlier today reported that the Kano State Executive Council approved the dethronement of Emir Sanusi II.
The Government later appointed a new Emir, Aminu Ado Bayero in his stead.
