The council of Zazzau Emirate declared the suspension of the district head, Alhaji Mustapha Adamu Ubaidu, Marafan Yamman Zazzau.

The Emirate Council held a meeting on Monday where the decision to suspend the district head was made.

This was known in a statement signed and given to the newsmen by the Emir's media and publicity aide, Abdullahi Aliyu Kwarbai.

The statement reads, “Mustapha Adamu Ubaidu was suspended indefinitely for alleged violation of ethics and taking the law into his hands.

 “The council has also received and deliberated on a number of complaints from residents of Anguwar Magajiya in Zaria city.”

The statement revealed that, “In view of these, the Zazzau Emirate Council has immediately suspended Alhaji Mustapha Adamu Ubaidu, Marafan Yamman Zazzau from his traditional title indefinitely.”

The statement went on to say that Yusuf Yahaya Sabo of Anguwar Magajiya had allegedly committed an offense for which the suspended traditional title holder had rendered a judgment without bringing any legal action.

The council, however, charged him with going beyond the bounds of his responsibilities by taking law into his hands.

The statement further cautioned all the district, village, and ward chiefs, as well as all traditional title holders in the emirate to not violated the code of ethics by taking laws into their hands.
