Oba Olalekan Balogun, the Olubadan of Ibadanland has suspended Alhaji Haruna Maiyasin, Sarki Sasa, Sasa, Ibadan in Akinyele Local Government Area of Oyo State over alleged disrespect and insubordination, All Nigeria Latest News has learnt.
It was learnt that Maiyasin was suspended on Wednesday when the Hausa community in the state converged at a meeting held at Sabo, Ibadan North LGA, headed by Seriki Hausawa of Ibadanland, Alhaji Ali Zungeru.
Maiyasin was also accused of unlawful conferment of chieftaincy titles on people without recourse to Sarki Hausawa of Ibadanland.
All Nigeria Latest News gathered that the continued stay of Maiyasin as District Head was capable of igniting a crisis in the area, hence his suspension.
It was leant that the suspension order shall stand pending the decision of the entire Arewa Community Council in Ibadan.
“It was during the reign of my elder brother, Shuaibu Dikko III, in 1983 that Maiyasin was appointed as a District Head, otherwise known as Baale in Yorubaland for administrative convenience with the hope to maintain peace, sanity and justice among the Hausa community in the Sasa area.
“It is in line with this, and to avoid anything that can lead to intra and inter-communal clash as we did experience before in Sabo-Sagamu, Sabo-Ile-Ife and recently in Sasa community in Akinyele Local Government that, I, Zungeru, the Sarkin Hausawa of Ibadanland and all the members of Arewa traditional institutions have decided to suspend the appointment of Maiyasin as the District Head of Hausa community in Sasa area, over insubordination, disrespect for the referred stool of Olubadan of Ibadanland and unlawful conferment of Chieftaincy titles on the people without recourse to Sarki Hausawa of Ibadanland.
“The suspension order shall stand pending the decision of the entire Arewa Community Council in Ibadan,” Zungeru said.
