Protest In Kebbi As Government Removes Monarch For Abusing Governor

The village head of Babban Dutsi in Birnin Kebbi Local
Government Area of Kebbi State, Alhaji Umau Marafa, was yesterday removed for
abusing Governor Abubakar Atiku Bagudu, of the state, NewTelegragh reports. His
removal was sequel to his involvement in active politics and for accusing
Governor Bagudu of incapable of providing the right leadership in the state.
The village head was removed on the directive of the Deputy
Governor, Ismail Yombe, who instructed the Ministry of Local Government and
Chieftaincy Affairs that the monarch should be removed.
Reacting to the sack of the monarch, supporters of the
deposed village head and the villagers resorted to violent demonstration in
protest against the decision which led to the burning of over 12 houses and a
thatched food store.

But reacting to the allegation leveled against him while
briefing newsmen yesterday, the deposed village head, Alhaji Umar Marafa, denied
the allegation, saying that he neither abused Governor Bagudu nor was he
involved in politics.
He said before the governor was elected, he was one of his
ardent supporters. “I never abused Governor Bagudu, even when he was a senator;
I supported him, talk less of now. I also don’t engage myself in politics.

My deposition was hatched by some politicians, but as you
can see, my people love me,” he added.
