Bauchi State Governor, Bala Mohammed has suspended the Emir of Misau along with the Chiroman Misau and the District Head of Zadawa over the clash between herdsmen and farmers that left 10 people dead during the week.
The Emir of Misau is a first class traditional ruler in Bauchi Central Senatorial District of the State.
The Governor had earlier suspended the Chairman, Deputy Chairman and Secretary of Misau Local Government for their failure to stop the deadly violence.
The governor said the paramount ruler alongside the District Head of Chiroma, Village Head of Zadawa in Hardawa District and other traditional rulers in the affected areas would remain suspended pending the outcome of investigation on the remote and immediate causes of the violence.
According to the Governor, during the period of their suspension, none of them would be allowed to travel out of Misau and must cooperate with the Investigative panel in carrying out its official function.
The suspension was announced during the inauguration of the 13 administrative panel of investigation into the issues in Bauchi.
