Lamido’s son suspended as district head

03 February 2016, 18:16

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).

According to him, a copy of the letter has been sent to Birninkudu Local Government Council to keep it abreast with the development.

Reacting, the Secretary to the State Government, Abdulkadir Fanini, said that Lamido’s son was suspended along with the District Head of Kiyawa, Aminu Wada, for the same offence.

Fanini said that their suspension was due to their trial by EFCC in the Federal High Court Abuja.
