The new home of Muhammad Sanusi II, deposed emir of Kano, is still undergoing construction, TheCable can report.


As of 5pm on Wednesday, the house, which is located about 500 metres from the palace of the emir of Awe, was still undergoing some upgrade.

TheCable visited the exile home and saw artisans fixing barbed wires and painting the building.

A truck also delivered a heap of sand for some finishing going on inside the compound.

TheCable understands that the house is owned by Umaru Tanko Akano, the chairman of Awe local government area.

“The house had been built before now, but it was not furnished and was rarely in use. But since Sanusi came here, they have been doing some work as you see for yourself,” Mamman Mohammed, who stays a few metres from the house, told TheCable.

Sanusi, who was dethroned as emir of Kano on Monday, travelled from his emirate to Abuja and to Loko in Nasarawa state.

From Loko, he was airlifted to Lafia, and brought in by road to Awe, which is said to be his exile home until further notice.

Some residents said they heard that Sanusi will be in the house for at least three months.

Awe is small town south of Lafia. It is about 85 kilometres from the capital of Nasarawa state.
