How I Was Detained At Kano Airport Over Sanusi, Governor Amaechi Narrates Ordeal

Governor Rotimi Amaechi of Rivers State has narrated how he was detained and escaped from Kano after his plane made an air return due to bad weather at Abuja Airport.

Governor Amaechi visited Kano on Sunday on a condolence visit, following the death of the late emir, Ado Bayero but was grounded on return leg back… He narrates his ordeal to newsmen.

The Governor  said: “We made contact with the tower to depart and they said we cannot leave, that the airport commandant said that no private jet can leave or enter Kano today.

“We thought it was a joke. We then called the airport commandant and I again called the governor to intervene and the governor called the commandant who said that it was the order he got from Abuja.
“Then five minutes after, they locked us inside the airport. They locked all the exits to the airport and we had to break the key to one of the exits and then we stepped out.

“We had to take a big decision. We called the governor who said he was sending cars to bring us to Government House and we said okay. But we made a decision that when the cars (from Government House) come, we would tell them to go back and not to tell the governor where we are.

“So we entered our car, got instruction to put off our phones and I drove from Kano to Abuja. We arrived Abuja 2a.m.
“We arrived after the announcement and we were impounded because they did not get what they wanted.

“The kingmakers selected Sanusi as number one, Ado Bayero as number two. Do I know any kingmaker? We all went for condolence visit.”
He also denied any role in the emergence of Sanusi as the Emir of Kano.

“We are in a dictatorship and it is supposed to be a democracy and everybody has a right to disagree with the President,” Amaechi added.

Governor Amaechi was with Senator Danjuma Goje, Senator Shaban Lafiagi and erstwhile national chairman of the defunct New Peoples Democratic Party, nPDP, Alhaji Kawu Baraje, when the incident happened. The APC Chieftains were in the state to lobby in favor of the former Governor of the Central Bank to be crowned Emir.
