A multimillion Naira Library belonging to the removed Emir of Kanom Muhammad Sanusi II has been moved out of the palace.
This was revealed by Mujtaba Abba, the private secretary to the former Emir.
He disclosed the deposed Emir had been worried about the fate of the library which has over 40,000 books and worth over 200 million Naira.
“His highness’ greatest concern was the fate of his books, so my sister and I stayed behind to ensure that we evacuated all the books,” Abba said.
“It took us sleepless nights to accomplish the task in two days. I made most of the transactions for the purchase of the books, and I can tell you, in a conservative estimate, they’re worth over N200m,” he said.
The former emir is also a former governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria. Many considered him as one of the most intellectual minds from the Northern part of Nigeria.
Mr Sanusi was dethroned and exiled to Nassarawa on Monday after a unanimous decision of the Kano State Executive Council. See photos below
