The Emir of Birnin ‘Yandoto, Alhaji Aliyu Marafa, has been suspended by the government of Zamfara State, which is run by Governor Bello Matawalle, for granting a chieftaincy title to well-known and infamous bandit leader Ado Aleru.
According to a previous report, the emirate decided to give Aleru a traditional title in an effort to bring about long-term peace in the conflict-torn Tsafe and Yandoton Daji emirates as well as other regions of the Zamfara and Katsina states, which the terrorist and his fighters had repeatedly attacked.
Anaedoonline.ng learnt that the title conferment followed dialogue between the elders of the emirate and the terror leader.
The murderous bandit had been ordered to stop attacking communities in the emirate by the elders of the emirate in March.
However, the state administration declared the instant suspension of the concerned monarch just 24 hours after the terrorist was given the chieftaincy title.
According to report, the Secretary to the Zamfara State Government, Kabiru Balarabe Sardauna, acknowledged the incident in a statement.
Therefore, the government delegated management of the emirate’s affairs to Alhaji Mahe Garba Marafa, the district head of ‘Yandoto.
According to the report by Newsmen, the state government also established a 6-person committee under the direction of Yahaya Chado Gora to look into the events leading up to the emir’s action.
