Dis­trict head pe­ti­tions mil­i­tary over sack, re­place­ment in Bauchi

Daily Trust - - NEWS - From Balarabe Alka­s­sim, Bauchi

The re­cently sacked dis­trict head of Bur­sali in Zaki LGA of Bauchi State, Al­haji Sale Abdu, has pe­ti­tioned the Gen­eral Of­fi­cer Com­mand­ing Of­fi­cer (GOC) 7 Di­vi­sion, Maiduguri, over the clear­ance of the re­in­stated dis­trict head of Bur­sali, Al­haji Has­san Jabir, by the army.

A pe­ti­tion re­port­edly sent to the GOC and copied to the Com­man­der, Op­er­a­tion Za­man Lafiya Dole, ac­cused Lt. Col. D. C Bako of clear­ing the re­in­stated dis­trict head with­out due process to as­cer­tain the ve­rac­ity of the al­le­ga­tions against him. He urged the GOC to in­ves­ti­gate the pe­ti­tion in or­der to curb in­se­cu­rity in their area.

It would be re­called that Gover­nor Mo­hammed Ab­dul­lahi Abubakar re­in­stated Al­haji Has­san Jabir as dis­trict head of Bur­sali and re­moved Ab­dul­lahi in a let­ter from the State Lo­cal Gov­ern­ment Ser­vice Com­mis­sion with Ref num­ber LGSC/LGA/S/ KEC/005/V.1/147

The re­in­stated dis­trict head was ear­lier re­moved by for­mer state gover­nor, Mal­lam Isa Yuguda, over an al­le­ga­tion of har­bour­ing armed ban­dits, sus­pected Boko Haram mem­bers and cat­tle rustlers. He was how­ever cleared of the al­le­ga­tions by the 233 bat­tal­ion of the Nige­rian Army on Novem­ber 23, 2014 in a let­ter with ref­er­ence No 233BN/61/300/88 signed by com­mand­ing Of­fi­cer, Lieu­tenant Colonel DC Bako, ad­dressed to the Chair­man of Zaki LGA.
