The Katsina Emirate Council has announced the dismissal of the District Head of Bakori, the Makaman Katsina, Idris Sule Idris, for allegedly aiding terrorism in his domain.
In a letter translated by the Premium Times and dated 19, January 2023, the Kauran Katsina, who is the district head of Rimi, Aminu Nuhu Abdulkadir, said the Makama was dismissed after a state government committee found him guilty of charges levelled against him by his people.
“Following a letter the emirate council received from the office of the Secretary Government of the State with reference number SEC/54/Vol. VI/1416, in which the executive governor confirmed that the allegations against you are true. The issues raised against you have led to the disruption of peace in your area. The emirate council, therefore, wishes to inform you that you’ve been relieved of your duties as Makaman Katsina, district head of Bakori,” Mr Abdulkadir, who is the senior Kingmaker at the emirate.
Emirate spokesperson, Ibrahim Bindawa, confirmed the sack to Premium Times.
