The village head of Butu-Butu in Rimingado Local Government of Kano State, Abubakar Sa’adu, has been suspended by the Karaye Emirate for selling land to Fulani herdsmen.

The Karaye Emirate is one of the four new emirates created by the Governor of Kano State, Abdullahi Ganduje, and is headed by Ibrahim Abubakar.

In a statement on Friday by its spokesperson, Haruna Muhammad Gunduwawa, the emirate announced the suspension of the village head.

The statement reads: “The Fulani migrants built a mosque on the land without following the due process which ignites conflict with host community.

“The District Head of Rimingado, Auwalu Ahmad Tukur (Magajin Rafin Karaye) had earlier written a petition to the Emir of Karaye, Ibrahim Abubakar II reporting the wrongdoing of the village head.

The indiscriminate selling of land to non-residents contributed to the clashes that resulted in the loss of lives and property in Oke-Ogun and Ibarapa axis of Oyo state between February and April.

In May, Abdulganiy Oloogunebi, the Aseyin of Iseyin in Oyo, warned residents of the state to “stop selling land to foreigners” whose nationality could not be determined.
