Malam Alhassan Musa, Chief of Anagada community in Gwagwalada Area Council, FCT has been booted off his throne.
In a meeting of traditional rulers with the FCT Administration, he was suspended by the FCT of State, Dr. Ramatu Tijjani Aliyu over complicity in insecurity around his area.
Unhappy Aliyu said: “Regrettably, we are starting this gathering with security report indicting one of the royal fathers in Gwagwalada Area Council. I don’t know how it will end, but we must begin to look closely at ourselves or activities.
“Royal stools are now being bastardised by some traditional rulers. The security agencies in their reports indicted one of you and we tried as much as possible to see how we can get to the bottom of the matter.
“Unfortunately, it was overruled because the report is not ours, it came from one of the security agencies. Therefore, we are not in a position to look into his case.
“It is not in our character, no matter the level of poverty to betray the trust bestowed on you as a traditional ruler and the custodian of our traditions. This will not be acceptable in the seat of government where Mr. President is the Governor General.
“Go and and discuss with your various village heads and give them a sound warning that those found wanting will not be spared. And no one has the right to accommodate total strangers or group of people especially now that we are facing challenges of insecurity.
“You cannot accommodate strangers. The people you accommodate can betray you. The people you harbour in your communities can be informants or bandits. At the end of the day, we battle with insurgents,” she warned.
