Kano Emir Suspends Abdullahi Sa’adu For Selling Land To Fulani Herdsmen

Karaye emirate in Kano has suspended Abdullahi Sa’adu, the village head of Butu-Butu in Rimingado LGA of the state, for selling land to Fulani herdsmen.

Karaye is one of the four new emirates created in 2019 by Abdullahi Ganduje, governor of Kano.

Ibrahim Abubakar II(pictured) is the emir of Karaye.

Haruna Muhammad Gunduwawa, the spokesperson of the emirate, 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.
