Jigawa- Mustapha Lamido, the District Head of Bamaina in Birninkudu Local Government of Jigawa State has been suspended by the Dutse emirate.
The Dutse emirate in Jigawa on Tuesday suspended Mustapha Lamido, the District Head of Bamaina in Birninkudu Local Government, who is also the son of former Governor Sule Lamido.
The notice of suspension was contained in a letter signed by the Secretary of the emirate council, Yunusa Garba, made available in Dutse.
The letter quoted Garba as saying the suspension was in a response to the state government’s directive to suspend the District Head because of his ongoing trial in court with Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC).
