Zamfara govt suspends Emir for turbaning Kidnap kingpin
The Governor of Zamfara State, Bello Mutawalle, has suspended the Emir of Birnin Yantodo, Alhaji Aliyu Marafa, for conferring a chieftaincy title on a banditry kingpin, Ado Alero.

Secretary to the State Government, Kabiru Balarabe, in a statement, announced the suspension of the emir with immediate effect, saying that the State government distanced itself from all the processes.

The State government, however, assigned Alh. Mahe Garba Marafa, the District Head of ‘Yandoto, to take charge of the affairs of the emirate.

The government, according to the statement, also raised a six-man committee chaired by Yahaya Chado Gora to investigate the circumstances leading to the action of the emir.

ROYAL NEWS reports that Birnin Yantodo is in Tsafe Local Government Area of Zamfara State and the monarch was reported to have turbaned a serial kidnapper as the Sarkin Fulani of the community.

It was gathered that Alero recently played roles in the peace process locally arranged between the emirate and the bandits terrorising Tsafe Local Government Area.
