The Bauchi Emirate Council has suspended the immediate past Speaker, House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, as Jakadan Bauchi, following the 31st of December, 2021 attack on the Emirs of Bauchi and Dass.

The Emirs of Bauchi and Dass, Rilwanu Sulaimanu Adamu and Usman Bilyaminu Othman were allegedly attacked by hoodlums while on their way to Bogoro to grace the 21st memorial anniversary of the late Sayawa, Baba Peter Gonto.

The attack followed the violence that erupted over the anniversary of Gonto.

Announcing Dogara’s suspension while speaking with journalists in Bauchi on Monday, the Emir of Bauchi said the suspension was with immediate effect.

The royal father, who was represented at the briefing by the Galadiman Bauchi, Sa’idu Ibrahim Jahun said the suspension remained effective till the final determination of a case filed against Dogara and others by the state government before the state High Court.

The emir expressed dismay that despite hailing from Bogoro and a traditional title holder of the venerable Bauchi Emirate Council, Dogara was suspected to be one of those behind the attack on the Emirs of Bauchi and Dass.

He added that surprisingly the former speaker never deemed it fit to either sympathise or show any remorse over what happened to traditional rulers.

“At the recent council meeting, we reviewed the case again and expressed our dismay that one of the sons of the area, a stakeholder and our traditional titleholder was mentioned as one of those misleading the people.

“More surprisingly, he did not sympathise or show any sign of remorse towards what happened to their Royal Highnesses, the Emirs of Bauchi and Dass.

“The Emirate Council, therefore, decided to suspend his title of Jakadan Bauchi until the determination of the case by the court,” he said.
