- From Rauf Oyewole, Bauchi

THE Executive Chairman, Bauchi State Orphans and Vulnerable Children Agency ( BASOVCA), Mrs. Hassana Arkila, has been suspended by Governor Bala Mohammed for alleged misconduct.

The governor had, last month, suspended the Executive Secretary of Muslim Pilgrims Welfare Board and ordered an investigat­ion into his administra­tion.

In a letter signed by his media aide, Muktar Gidado, yesterday, Mohammed ordered Arkila to vacate the office with immediate effect for proper investigat­ion into the affairs of the agency following an alleged misconduct.

“Consequent­ly, she is directed to hand over the affairs of the agency to the most senior officer, pending the outcome of the investigat­ion,” he added.
