    Banditry: Matawalle suspends emir, district head

    The Governor of Zamfara State, Bello Matawalle, has suspended the Emir of Dansadau in Maru Local Government Area of the state, Alhaji Hussaini Umar.

    Also suspended is the District Head of Nasarawa Mailayi in Birnin Magaji Local Government, Alhaji Bello Wakkala.

    This was contained in a statement by the Governor’s Special Adviser on Media and Public Enlightenment, Malam Zailani Bappa.

    The statement said, “The District Head of Dansadau, Alhaji Nasiru Muhammad S/Kudu will oversee the affairs of Dansadau emirate pending the outcome of an investigation”.

    The Governor, according to the statement, has appointed a high-powered committee of some credible personalities to investigate the activities of the suspended traditional title holders.

    The Committee members comprised of DIG Moh’d Ibrahim Tsafe (rtd) as Chairman; Hon. Yusuf Alhassan Kanoma, Hon. Ibrahim Tukur, Sheikh Ahmad Umar Kanoma, Sheikh Abdullahi Umar Dalla Dalla, Sheikh Kabir Umar Maru as members.

    The committee has Barrister Abdurrashid Haruna as Secretary

    The Governor has also ordered the security agents to effectively implement the presidential order to shoot at any bandit, person or group seen with guns other than those approved to lawfully carry guns.

    Meanwhile, the insecurity situation in the state is deteriorating by the day as bandits continue to kill, kidnap, rustle animals and burn houses in almost all the 14 local government areas of the state.

    Hundreds of villages and hamlets have been deserted by their inhabitants, while the bandits have taken over the deserted places.

    The people of the state have been staging demonstrations in order to compel both the state and federal government to deploy additional reinforcement to their respective communities in order to arrest the lingering insecurity problem.

    The Emir of Zurmi in Zurmi Local Government, Alhaji Abubakar Atiku escaped lynching by his subjects for his alleged romance with the bandits.
