Shock as Zamfara Emir honours repentant bandit with chieftaincy title

The Emir of Sabon Birnin Yandoto in Zamfara State, Alhaji Aliyu Marafa, has conferred the traditional title of Sarkin on a repentant bandits’ kingpin, Adamu Aliero.

The ceremony was performed in Yandoto town, the headquarters of the emirate.

With his new title, Aliero is now the leader of the clan in the emirate.

Speaking, the spokesperson of the emirate, Lawali Magaji, said, the title of Sarkin was conferred on Aliero considering his present status as a -maker within the emirate.

Magaji added that, with this development, the people of the emirate could now go to their farms without fear of bandits’ attacks.

He said, “He has been trying to stop within the emirate and we have seen positive changes.

“The conferment of the title of Sarkin on Adamu Aliero will give him more to control the entire people within the emirate. It will also enable him to checkmate the activities of the recalcitrant bandits and take action against them.”
