Emir Sanusi suspends village head over alleged rape of 14yr old girl

Emir of Kano, Alhaji Muhammadu Sanusi, has suspended Usman Musa Muhammad, the village head of Goron-Maje in Dambatta LGA of the state over   alleged rape of a 14-year old girl.

Announcing the suspension yesterday, the Galadiman Kano, Alhaji Abbas Sanusi, said the village head was suspended to ensure proper investigation into the matter.

He added that the emirate council had set up a committee to investigate the matter and report back to the palace. He also said the committee comprises representatives of the palace and officials of the State Hisbah Board.

The Galadima warned other traditional title holders in the state against anything capable of tarnishing their integrity and the image of the emirate.

“The 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,” he said.

“The village head slept with me on several occasions. He threatened to kill me if I told anyone about my relationship with him and that is why I kept quiet,” the girl told Hisbah officials.
The Commander-General of the Hibah Board, Sheikh Aminu Ibrahim Daurawa, said the board would invite the village head for questioning.
