UPDATE : How Deposed Emir Sanusi’s N200m Library Evacuated

Over 40,000 books and journals cataloged at the expansive library of the deposed Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi, have been successfully evacuated from the palace.

Mr Sanusi was deposed on Monday after a resolution of the Kano State Executive Council.

In an interview with DAILY NIGERIAN, the emir’s principal private secretary, Mujtaba Abba, said the books were taken to a safe location within the state.

“High Highness’s greatest concern was the fate of his books, so my sister and I stayed behind to ensure that we evacuated all the books. It took us sleepless nights to accomplish the task in two days,” said Mr Abba, who recently resigned as Falakin Kano.

He revealed that the books worth over N200million.

“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.

On the emir’s equestrian treasure, he said: “among his over 40 beautiful horses and over 100 choice saddles, he picked one each and left the remaining to his successor.”
