Emir Who Turbaned Bandit Has Been Suspended

Alhaji Aliyu Marafa, the Emir of Birnin Yandoto of Tsafe Local Government Area of Zamfara State has been suspended by Governor Bello Matawalle for conferring a chieftaincy title on Ado Alero, a banditry kingpin.

The banditry kingpin, Ado Alero, was turbaned as the Sarkin Fulani on Saturday July 16,2022 by the Emir.

Report has it that the decision of conferring the title on Ado Alero was based on the major role he played during a recent peace process locally arranged between the emirate and the bandits terrorising Tsafe Local Government Area.

Kabiru Balarebe, the Secretary to the State Government, 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 has assigned Alh. Mahe Garba Marafa, the District Head of ‘Yandoto, to take charge of the affairs of the emirate and also raised a six-man committee chaired by Yahaya Chado Gora to investigate the circumstances leading to the action of the emir.

  1. Why's he wanted if they know where and how to find him? Nigeria is a joke!

    1. Gbam, so police and army couldn't storm the even to pick him up.

  2. Government with all resources at her disposal could not find a way of resolving conflict locals faced with bandits. Communities took initiative and turbaned bandit lord so that they can go about their existence without any brutish interferences. I now understand why they use Nigeria as a case study for failed states

  3. We have a long way to go. So they can see bandit to turban him but they can't see him to arrest abi?

  4. Eka u just asked a very important question that need immediate ans..why is he declared wanted..

  5. The Emir may have done that to save his people. But how come all Nigeria's ...did not get any information on the turbaning which obviously took hours and lots of fanfare? Who withdraws the military one hour/day before bandits attack?
