The deposed Emir of Kano, Lamido Sanusi, has filed a legal suit against the Inspector General of Police and the Director-General of the Department of State Services (DSS) over his post-dethronement detention and confinement.

Sanusiโ€™s lawyers led by Lateef Fagbemi filed the suit on Thursday before the Federal High Court in Abuja.

Also named as respondents in the suit are the Attorney-General of Kano State and the Attorney-General of the Federation.

Sanusi asked the court for an interim order releasing him โ€œfrom the detention and or confinement of the respondents and restoring the applicantโ€™s rights to human dignity, personal liberty, freedom of association and movement in Nigeria, (apart from Kano State) pending the hearing and determination of the applicantโ€™s originating summons.โ€

Sanusi was dethroned on Monday by Kano State Government. He has been in detention since then in Awe, a town in Nasarawa State.
