Abdullahi Ganduje, the governor of Kano, established four new emirates in 2019. Karaye is one of them.
Haruna Muhammad Gunduwawa, the emirate's spokesperson, announced the suspension of the village head in a statement posted on Friday.
The statement noted that;
â€œthe Fulani migrants built a mosque on the land without following the due process which ignites conflict with host community,â€.
â€œThe suspension is to pave way for proper investigation by a committee set up to look into the allegations against the traditional ruler.
â€œThe District Head of Rimingado, Auwalu Ahmad Tukur (Magajin Rafin Karaye) had earlier written a petition to the Emir of Karaye, Ibrahim Abubakar II reporting the wrongdoing of the village head.â€
â€œThe village head was cautioned by both the District Head office and Rimin Gado local government council on selling the land.â€
Residents of Butu-Butu were urged to support and collaborate with Umar in order for him to carry out his duties properly, according to the emirate.
Between February and April, confrontations in the Oke-Ogun and Ibarapa
axis of Oyo state resulted in the loss of lives and property due to
indiscriminate land sales to non-residents.
Abdulganiy Oloogunebi, the Aseyin of Iseyin in Oyo, issued a warning in May to citizens of the state to "avoid selling land to foreigners" whose nationality was unknown.
