Pastor Tunde Bakare of the Latter Rain Assembly on Saturday, March 14, visited the dethroned Emir of Kano, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, in Lagos state.
Kaduna state governor, Malam Nasir El-Rufai also visited Sanusi at Awe, a town in Nasarawa state where he was banished to after his dethronement.
Sanusi was driven to Abuja in company of Governor El-Rufai after a Federal High Court sitting in Abuja granted an interim order releasing him from detention in Nasarawa state.
The airplane that Sanusi boarded departed Nnamdi Azikwe International Airport in Abuja by 10:47 pm and landed in Lagos state few minutes after.
El-Rufai said he and Bakare led some other dignitaries to Sanusi’s new home in Lagos state.
A post on the verified Twitter handle of the Kaduna state governor, read: “El-Rufai said he and Bakare led some other dignitaries to Sanusi’s new home in Lagos after the “Lagos version” of Bakare’s 60th birthday and presentation of his latest book, ‘These Times’.”

Earlier, The Herald reported that Shehu Sani, a former senator representing Kaduna central, disclosed that northern elders failed to prevail on Governor Umar Ganduje not to dethrone Muhammadu Sanusi as Emir of Kano.
Sani explained that a traditional ruler from the southwest mobilized the leaders from the north to help Sanusi remain in the position of authority but they backed out at the last minute because of fear.
The senator on Friday, March 13, made this known through his official Twitter handle.
He tweeted: “The King of the South West tried hard to mobilize the leaders from the North to save the Emir;they backed out on d last minute,out of fear not to invite the anger & the wrath of the powers unto themselves.They allowed him to be pushed off d cliff & now helping with a wheelchair.”
