The former Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) meeting is coming after the junta aborted a meeting with representatives of African Union (AU), Economic Community of West Africa States (ECOWAS) and a top US diplomat.
A delegation raised by ECOWAS could not broker peace with the military rulers as they declined a meeting.
But on Wednesday, footages of Sanusi, whose Tijjaniya sect has a large following in Niger, went into circulation.
Sanusi met the Junta leaders in company of the Sultan of Damagaran.
Damagaran is the third largest city in Niger.
