Bandit Kingpin Turban as the Sarkin Fulani in Yandoto Emirate, Slaughtered 17 Cows & Rams For The Coronation And Made A Threat – Security Source

Controversy has trailed the turbaning of a bandit kingpin identified as Adamu Yankuzo, AKA Ado Alero, as the Sarkin Fulani in Yandoto Emirate of Zamfara state by the Emir, Aliyu Marafa.

It should be noted that Alero spearheaded the attack on the Kadisau community in the Kankara local government area of Katsina state, where about 54 people lost their lives, thereby forcing the Katsina state police command to place a N5 million bounty on his head.

A source who pleaded anonymity said that the coronation was almost cancelled by the Emir and the Chairman of Tsafe local government area.

Also, a village head in the area revealed that there was pressure from the state government to suspend the ceremony. However, after a meeting in Tsafe, permission to continue the coronation was gotten from the state government via the sole administrator of the LGA, Aminu Mudi, after he was briefed on the importance of bestowing the traditional title on the kingpin. Premium Times gathered that the ceremony later occurred at around 2:45 pm on the same day and was attended by some top government officials.

Meanwhile, a security source who was at the coronation revealed that the security affairs commissioner was aware of the threat made by the bandit leader and that they couldn’t cancel the ceremony due to fear of a possible series of attacks on the area by bandits.

He added that the kingpin had already slaughtered 17 cows and several rams for the turbaning ceremony and had a mini event to celebrate the coronation in a village in the area.

Furthermore, the palace secretary, Mr. Yusuf, claimed that Alero was honored with the title because the Emir wanted peace.

He added that the coronation had nothing to do with politics or connivance, stating that the bandit kingpin didn’t beg for the title.

In my opinion, it is not morally right to bestow a traditional title on a bandit kingpin who was once wanted by the police for causing mayhem.
