Reacting to the event, Governor Bello Matawalle suspended the Emir and inaugurated a committee to investigate the circumstances leading to his action.

The committee has Yahaya Goro as chairman and Musa Garba as secretary.

The members are Yahay Kanoma, Muhammed Magaji, Lawal Zannah, Isa Moriki.

However, Secretary of the Committee, Bukkuyum in a letter to the government requested funds running into millions of Naira for two weeks’ sitting allowances, stationeries, refreshments and other miscellaneous procurements.

“I humbly write to apply on behalf of the above-mentioned committee for the release of funds to finance its activities which have since commenced today Thursday, 21st July 2022.

“The total amount requested hereby is Three Million Two Hundred and Ninety-Three Thousand Eight Hundred Naira (N3,293,800.00) only.”

A breakdown of the committee’s demand includes a N420,000 sitting allowance for the chairman, which is a daily fee of N30,000 for 14 days.
