Chairman of Jama’are Local Government Council in Bauchi State, Samaila Jarma, has ordered the immediate demolition of Gidan Zana, a notorious hideout of criminals and other bad elements in the area.
He gave the order following the removal of a 6-year-old girl’s sex organ in Jama’are.

The chairman also ordered the immediate arrest of any herbalist found to be involved in rituals for people particularly the jobless youths.
Jarma, who disclosed this to newsmen in Bauchi, said that the move was to checkmate the rampant cases of criminal activities in the area, including money rituals.
He said the council has given security operatives in the area the marching order to arrest and prosecute anyone linked to any criminal activity in the area especially issues of violence against vulnerable people for rituals.
Meanwhile, Jarma has dismissed media announcements soliciting financial assistance for the treatment of the six-year-old girl.
“For the avoidance of doubt, the State Governor, Bala Mohammed has taken responsibility for the medical bills. The government has already deposited the sum of N1 million for the commencement of her treatment.
“More money will be released on demand by the team of medical professionals working on her. As a council, we have supplied food items and other needs to the family, which will be done continuously,” he said.
