Their dismissals order is contained in a statement signed and issued to newsmen in Bauchi on Friday (today) by the Acting Permanent Secretary of the Local Government Service Commission, Nasiru Ibrahim, on behalf of the Chairman of the Commission.

The statement reads, “The Local Government Service Commission has approved the dismissal of six traditional rulers in Bauchi and Katagum emirate. This followed their involvement in partisan politics, misconduct, illegal forest reserve encroachment and felling of trees, misappropriation of public funds, and insubordination which is contrary to the public service rules.

“Those affected, according to the statement, include Alhaji Aminu Muhammad Malami, District Head of Udubo, Alhaji Bashir Kabir Umar, District Head of Azare, Umar Omar, Village Head of Gadiya; and Umar Bani, Village Head of Tarmasawa all in Katagum emirate council.
