District head of Kankara, Yusuf Lawal has been sacked by Katsina Emirate Council for alleged complicity in banditry.
Before being sacked, Lawal was the district head of Kankara community where about 300 students were abducted by bandits last December.
Secretary of the Emirate council, Bello Ifo Mamman said the district head was found guilty by a committee that investigated his alleged association with bandits. Lawal was reportedly found guilty of aiding and siding with bandits and kidnappers operating in the Kankara axis.
“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.”
