Sanusi was dethroned by the Abdullahi Ganduje-led administration that created an additional four emirates.

Governor Yusuf also dethroned Alh. Aminu Ado Bayero and four other first-class emirs in the state on Thursday.

He gave the sacked monarchs 48 hours to hand over to the deputy governor and vacate the palaces.

Prior to his accession, Sanusi was an Islamic intellectual, academic, political economist and banker.

He served as the Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria from 2009 to 2014, ushering in banking reforms until his suspension after he brought to light the $20 billion oil scandal.
