The village head of Butu-Butu in Rimingado Local Government Area of Kano state, Alaji Abdullahi Sa’adu has been suspended by the Karaye Emirate for selling land to Fulani herdsmen.
Ibrahim Abubakar II is the emir of Karaye, one of the four emirates created in 2019 by Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano.
The spokesperson of the emirate, Haruna Muhammad Gunduwawa released a statement announcing the village head’s suspension on Friday.
“The Fulani migrants built a mosque on the land without following the due process which ignites conflict with host community,” the statement reads.
“The suspension is to pave way for proper investigation by a committee set up to look into the allegations against the traditional ruler.
“The District Head of Rimingado, Auwalu Ahmad Tukur (Magajin Rafin Karaye) had earlier written a petition to the Emir of Karaye, Ibrahim Abubakar II reporting the wrongdoing of the village head.”
“The village head was cautioned by both the District Head office and Rimin Gado local government council on selling the land.”
Meanwhile, the emirate has deployed Habibu Umar, the Madakin Shamaki, to oversee the affairs of the village pending the outcome of the investigation.
The emirate appealed to residents of Butu-Butu to support and cooperate with Umar to discharge his duty effectively.
There have been clashes between farmers and herders in major parts of the country.
