Days after Sanusi Lamido Sanusi II was dethroned by Governor Umar Ganduje, a N200m library which belongs to the deposed Emir has been evacuated from the palace.

This was disclosed by the principal private secretary of the deposed Emir, Majtaba Abba who resigned barely 12 hours after the dethronement.

Abba confirmed that over 40,000 books and journals catalogued at the expansive library have been evacuated in an interview with journalists.

Abba said they were taken to a safe location within the state.

Abba who also resigned as Falakin Kano over the dethronement of the former CBN boss said, “Highness’ 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.

“I made most of the transactions for the purchase of the books, and I can tell you, in conservative estimate, they’re worth over N200m.”

Abba further revealed that Sanusi took only one horse out of his equestrian treasure and left the remaining to his successor.

He added;

“Among his over 40 beautiful horses and over 100 choice saddles, he picked one each and left the remaining to his successor.”
