Mr Sanusi, after his banishment from Kano, was confined to Awe town in Nasarawa State.

The Federal High Court in Abuja Thursday fixed November 30 for judgment in a suit filed by deposed emir Muhammadu Sanusi against the Kano State government and others.

The presiding judge, Anwuli Chikere, fixed the date after counsel to the parties adopted all their processes and arguments.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Mr Sanusi had on March 12, 2020, sued the Inspector-General of Police and Director-General of the State Security Service (SSS) for “unlawful detention/confinement” at the Federal High Court, Abuja.

Also joined in the motion with suit number FHC/ABJ/CS/357/2020 are the Attorney-General of Kano State and Attorney General of the Federation as 3rd and 4th respondents.

Mr Sanusi, after his banishment from Kano, was confined to Awe town, Nasarawa State.

The former emir had sought an interim order of the court releasing him from detention and/or confinement of the respondents and restoring his right to human dignity and personal liberty.

Although the deposed emir had since been released, the case is still in court as the originating motion remains undetermined.
