I’m not involved in Sanusi’s dethronement – Malami

The Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, SAN, says he has no connection with the dethronement of former Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II.

“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”.

In an update earlier published by Pulse Nigeria, the embattled monarch had claimed that the Attorney General of Kano State, Ibrahim Muktar, and the Attorney General of the Federation, instructed the Department of State Services and police to detain him.

Sanusi also said the dethronement letter sent to him was badly and unprofessionally written and he could have challenged it in court if he wanted the throne back.
