Matawalle suspends district head for conferring chieftaincy title on bandits’ ammunition supplier

Zamfara State governor, Bello Matawalle, has suspended the district head of Badarawa in Shinkafi Emirate Council, the Sarkin Kudun Badarawa, Alhaji Surajo Namakkah Ibrahim, for conferring the traditional title of ‘Durumbu’ on a military officer who was arrested for selling ammunition to bandits in Shinkafi Local Government Area of the state.


The governor said he was sad to receive a report that the military officer attached to Shinkafi general area was arrested for selling ammunition to bandits operating in the area and was even bestowed with a chieftaincy title by the district head.


In a statement by his Director General, Media, Yusuf Idris Gusau, on Friday, Matawalle reiterated that the government would not tolerate anything capable of destroying the peace and reputation of the state.



He said the government would ensure that anybody found wanting in anyway was dealt with accordingly. The governor said the suspension of the district head was indefinite because the conferment of the traditional title was not borne out of any significant contribution to the development of the area.
