Days after Muhammed Sanusi was evicted from his palace as the emir of Kano by Kano State government, over 40,000 books and journals catalogued at the expansive library of the palace have been evacuated, POLITICS NIGERIA can report.
The books were evacuated for two days to an undisclosed location within the state.
Mr Sanusi’s secretary, Mujtaba Abba, told Daily Nigerian, an online newspaper that he stayed back with his sister to carry out the task.
“High 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”
Speaking on the worth of the books, he said: “I can tell you, in conservative estimate, they’re worth over N200m”.
POLITICS NIGERIA reported how Mr Abba recently resigned as Falakin Kano after the removal of Mr Sanusi on Monday.
