Hadejia Emirate sacks chieftain over alleged abuse of illicit drugs


The Hadejia Emirate Council has stripped Alhaji Abubakar Hussain Abubakar of his traditional title as Dan Lawan of Hadejia.

This was contained in a statement signed by the emirate council’s secretary, Alhaji Muhammad Baffale Abbas, and issued to the Newspot.

The statement said his sack followed his alleged involvement in dealing with illicit drugs.

According to the statement, the council’s decision followed a letter received by the emirate from the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) over his involvement in the use of illicit drugs.

The statement said the traditional title holder refused to honour an invitation letter sent to him by NDLEA to defend himself over the allegation.


According to the statement, “The council had different consultations, some of which were with his closest associates and confirmed the allegation.”

The council’s secretary said the decision was to serve as a lesson to others.
