Alhaji Yusuf Lawal, the District Head of Kankara, also known as Sarkin Pawwan Katsina, has been fired by the Katsina Emirate Council.
Lawal was first detained by the Emirate in April of this year (last month).
The District Head was suspended after he was found guilty of all charges filed against him by citizens in his domain, the most of which had to do with supporting and assisting banditry as well as hindering ongoing efforts to combat bandits in the area.
The Emirate’ s spokesman, Alhaji Ibrahim Bindawa, informed Channels Television that the District Head had been suspended earlier this month for allegedly funding bandit activities in Kankara, one of the state’ s frontline Local Government Areas beset by violence.
He added that the Emirate set up a commission chaired by Kauran Katsina, Rimi District Head, which met with security officers and other stakeholders, particularly from Kankara district, and found the District Head guilty of assisting bandits and kidnappers terrorizing Kankara LGA.
” A succession of complaints from residents prompted the immediate suspension, which was followed by an investigation.
” What happened was that the State Government had already authorized the Emirate Council to begin an investigation into the locals’ complaints against the District Head.
” After the investigation was completed, the Emirate judged him guilty and submitted its report to the State Government, which directed the Emirate to fire him, ” Bindawa explained.
344 pupils from the Government Science Secondary School in Kankara were kidnapped in December 2020. The incident occurred in Kankara’ s Government Science Secondary School, and the children were released after a week of negotiations with the federal government, as well as the state governments of Katsina and Zamfara.
Meanwhile, Boko Haram terrorists claimed responsibility for the kidnapping, claiming that the attack was carried out to stop the school from engaging in non- Islamic practices.
In March, the Governor of Katsina State, Aminu Masari, issued an order that all boarding schools remain closed due to the threat of bandits attacking schools.
In addition, the state government announced intentions to deploy security dogs to safeguard students at all of the state’s public boarding schools.
