Bauchi State govern­ment has lifted the sus­pen­sion of the Emir of Misau, Al­haji Ahmed Suleiman and re­in­stated him to his throne.

The emir was sus­pended at the wake of a com­mu­nal clash over land between farm­ers and herders which claimed 11 lives in the area about four months ago.

An ad­min­is­tra­tive panel that in­ves­ti­gated the clash in­dicted the monarch for dere­lic­tion of duty, which fu­eled and es­ca­lated the fa­tal cri­sis in his do­main and rec­om­mended that the emir be warned, made to ten­der a writ­ten apol­ogy and be re­called back to the throne.

The emir was called back from the sus­pen­sion on Mon­day via a let­ter lift­ing the sus­pen­sion, which was pre­sented to him in his Palace in Misau by the Sec­re­tary to the State Govern­ment, Sabiu Mo­hammed Baba, in the com­pany of the Chief of Staff, Govern­ment House, Ladan Sal­ihu.

Speak­ing af­ter re­ceiv­ing the let­ter, the emir re­it­er­ated his loy­alty to the state govern­ment say­ing that his sub­jects, who are peace lov­ing will con­tinue to live in peace with each other and sup­port pro­mo­tion of peace­ful co­ex­is­tence in the state.

When con­tacted, Se­nior Special As­sis­tant to Gover­nor Bala Mo­hammed on Me­dia, Mukhtari Gi­dado, told Daily Trust that the emir had ten­dered the writ­ten apol­ogy to the state govern­ment as rec­om­mended by the in­ves­tiga­tive panel be­fore he was re­in­stated to his throne.
