Zamfara State Government has dethroned two first-class Emirs and a District Head over their Involvement in armed banditry and other criminal activities.
The dethroned Emirs Include the Emir of Dansadau Hussaini Umar, the Emir of Zurmi Abubakar Atiku, and the District Head of Birnin Tsaba in Zurmi Emirate Suleiman Danyabi.
The State Commissioner for Information and Home affairs Ibrahim Dosara Announced this to newsmen after the state executive council meeting held at the Government House, in Gusau.
Mr Dosara said the decision becomes necessary after careful study of the report of the two Committees set up by the state government to investigate the allegations.
However, the Council has also ordered that all land titles issued by the affected Emirs would be revoked.
It would be recalled that Emirs of Dansadau Hussaini Umar and that of Zurmi Abubakar Atiku were suspended in June and July last year over reports of their Involvement in Banditry and other Criminal activities.
