 Emir of Kano Muhammadu Sanusi ll has suspended village head of Goron-Maje in Dambatta local government area of the state, Usman Musa Muhammad for alleged rape of a 14-year old girl (name withheld).

 

Announcing the suspension, the Galadiman Kano Alhaji Abbas Sanunsi said the village head was suspended to enable proper investigation into the matter.

 

Galadima added that the emirate council has set up an committee to investigate the matter and report back to the palace.

 

He said the committee comprised representatives of the palace and officials of the Kano State Hisbah Board.

 

Galadima therefore warned other traditional title holders in the state to desist from anything capable of tarnishing their integrity and the image of the emirate.

 

He said: “Kano emirate council will not condone any act of immorality by its representatives, hence, will not spare any traditional ruler found wanting in such acts.”

 

Daily Trust gathered that the suspended village head was said to have infected the girl with HIV virus.

 

The girl exposed the embattled village head after she was tested HIV positive when her suitor took her for HIV test.

 

“The village head had slept with me on several occasions. He had threatened to kill me if I tell anyone about my relationship with him and that is why I kept quiet,” the girl told Hisbah officials.

 

The Commander General of Kano State Hibah Board, Sheikh Aminu Ibrahim Daurawa, said the board will invite the village head for questioning.
