Nigerians are condemning the installation of a wanted terrorist Ado Aleru (Alieru) as Sarkin Fulani (King of Fulanis) of Yandoton Daji Emirate in Zamfara state.
Critics accuse the government of encouraging insecurity.
The bandit leader, Adamu Aliero, was turbaned on Saturday by Aliyu Garba Marafa, the first Emir of Yandoto.
Marafa announced Aleru as “the new Sarkin Fulanin Yandoton Daji in accordance with the cultural requirements of the Emirate”.
The appointment, he explained, agrees “with the demand for peace and reconciliation efforts highly needed for our people in our Emirate, Tsafe local government area, Zamfara and Nigeria”.
It was said the coronation of 47-year-old Aleru was decided as part of efforts to appease him in order to achieve peace in the state.
The bandit leader supervised killings, abduction, and the rustling of cattle in Tsafe and across Zamfara and Katsina states.
Following the attacks, the federal government ordered a hunt for the man also known as Yankuzo.
In June 2020, Katsina Commissioner of Police, Sanusi Buba declared him wanted “dead or alive” with a N5million bounty.
This was after over 20 people were killed by bandits.
The police said Usman confessed to having participated in the invasions and killings at Kadisau village of Faskari and others at Musawa, Matazu, Karaduwa, and Yantumaki.
