Kankara district head sacked ‘for aiding banditry’
THE District Head of Kankara, Alhaji Yusuf Lawal, has been sacked for “aiding and abetting banditry” in his domain.
Over 300 students of Kankara Government Science School were kidnapped in December 11 2020 and released seven days later.
Recall that late Auwal Daudawa, a notorious kidnap kingpin masterminded the mass abduction of the students, the first of such abduction by any criminal group outside Boko Haram in the North-East.
Alhaji Bello Mamman-Ifo, the Council’s Secretary, made the announcement today through the Emirate’s Information Officer, Alhaji Ibrahim Bindawa, in Katsina.
Mamman said the sacking of Lawal as district head “is with immediate effect.”
He said the investigation conducted on the allegation levelled against Lawal that he was aiding and abetting banditry in his domain revealed that he was guilty of the offence.
“The investigation found him guilty of all the charges levelled against him.
“The report was forwarded to the state government and it was directed that he should be dismissed as District Head,” he said.
