Zamfara bandit chieftaincy controversy: Quest for peace not an excuse-Bademosi


The Zamfara State government has suspended the Emir of Birnin ‘Yandoto of Tsafe Local Government Area, Aliyu Marafa after he conferred a traditional title on a wanted terrorist.

Secretary to the State Government, Kabiru Sardauna, announced the suspension in a statement on Sunday.

The statement also dissociated the state government from Aleru’s appointment.

During the ceremony, the emir said he was making Aleru a chief to ensure a lasting peace in the area.

He also said the conferment was done with the approval of the state and local governments.

His gang has been blamed for several attacks on communities in Katsina and Zamfara states where they are most active.
