Images of the new home of the deposed Emir of Kano Muhammadu Sanusi have appeared on Wednesday morning after the monarch settles in a relatively better home in Awe, Nasarawa State.
Mr Sanusi arrived at his new home on Tuesday morning, following his deposition by Kano State Government on Monday.
The monarch was earlier banished to Loko village in the same Nasarawa State but the condition of the village and house, lacking in basic amenities, necessitated his transfer to Awe town by the state government.
A glimpse into the modest two-bedroom bungalow belonging to Awe Local Government chairman shows the house is in a state of disrepair.
Sources told DAILY NIGERIAN that water is not running from the tap and the water closet and some electrical fittings are not working.
The source also said some floor areas in the house are not in good shape.
There have been calls by the civil society and concerned Nigerians for the emir’s freedom since his banishment on Monday.
Amnesty International had on Tuesday faulted the violation of the emir’s rights to movement, calling on the Nigerian authorities to respect Mr Sanusi’s fundamental rights.
