The Emir of Zazzau, Ahmed Nuhu Bamalli, has ordered the immediate suspension of two district heads and two other titleholders.
Ubangarin Zazzau, Alhaji Bashir Shehu Idris, (District Head of Soba), and Sarkin Dajin Zazzau, Alhaji Shehu Umar Aliyu, are the affected districts (District Head of Kubau).
Wakilin Birnin Zazzau, Suleiman Ibrahim Dabo, (a member of Kaduna State House of Assembly representing Zaria city) and Garkuwan Kudun Zazzau, Muhammadu Sani Uwais (Bursar, FCE Zaria), are the other two.
According to a statement issued by the Zazzau Emirate Council’s Media and Publicity Officer, Abdullahi Aliyu Kwarbai, the district heads, and title holders were suspended for violating Article III of the Emirate Rules and Regulations, which prohibits the use of armed thugs during durbar horse riding.
