The suspended emir of Misau in Bauchi State, Alhaji Ahmed Suleiman has reiterated his loyalty to the state government, as well as promoting peaceful co-existence among his subjects and people of the state generally.
He also assured that his subjects who are peace-loving will continue to live in peace and harmony with one another in promoting peaceful co-existence among them.
The emir was speaking while receiving a letter lifting his suspension presented to him Monday by the Secretary to the State Government (SSG), Alhaji Sabi’u Mohammed Baba in company of Bauchi Government House Chief of Staff, Dr. Ladan Salihu.
A government statement made available to the press, said with lifting of the suspension, the emir has assumed the ruler-ship of Misau emirate comprising of Misau and Dambam Local Government Areas.
Alhaji Ahmed Suleiman has spent almost four months under suspension during which period an administrative committee of inquiry set up by the government to investigate the circumstances that culminated to the farmers/herders bloody clash over grazing land in Zadawa village area of Misau emirate.
The Zadawa farmers/herders bloody clash which occurred sometimes last July has led to the killing of ten persons with many others then hospitalized, an incident that earned Emir Ahmed Suleiman the suspension.
The investigative panel which on 25th September submitted its report to the state government, had found the emir with dereliction of duty, as it recommended that Alhaji Ahmed Suleiman be warned, in addition to writing a letter of apology as panacea for his stage back to the throne.
It could be recalled that the Land Use Act of 2004 has vested land administration with the federal, states and local governments through the functions of ministries of lands and survey.
Also, the Emir of Katagum, Alhaji Umar Faruk Umar 11 recently during the State Chief Judge’s visits to custodial centres at his Azare palace tendered an appeal to the judiciary to look into circumstances where in Katagum emirate an individual can grasp a land, but simply run to magistrate court to claim ownership where he with alleged rubs of impels be granted.
