Governor Bello Matawalle
Governor Bello Matawalle has suspended Surajo Namakka, the district head of Badarawa in Shinkafi emirate of Zamfara state, for conferring a title on a soldier who was arrested for selling ammunition to bandits.
Yusuf Idris, Director-General of media to the state government announced the indefinite suspension of the district head on Friday, April 16.
Noting that the state government will not tolerate anything capable of destroying the hard-earned peace of Zamfara, Governor Matawalle pledged to ensure that anybody found wanting in anyway will be dealt with accordingly.
Traditional rulers have also been asked to seek approval before conferring traditional titles, to avoid unnecessary embarrassment to government and the traditional institution.
