Bauchi Women Protest Over Monarch’s Detention

Hundreds of Sayawa women in Bogoro and Tafawa Balewa local government areas of Bauchi State, on Thursday, protested the continued detention of their monarch, the Gung Zaar-select, Air Commodore Ishaku Komo, by the police in the state.

The women are out on the streets protesting for the fifth day in a row, demanding the release of their monarch.

News had reported that the Gung Zaar-select was arrested along with six others for their alleged involvement in the communal crisis that erupted in Sang Village in Bogoro LGA about two weeks ago over the coronation of a Hamlet Head.

A 70-year old man was gruesomely killed in the incident and many sustained various degrees of injuries while 74 houses, shops and three motorcycles were completely burnt down.

The Bauchi State Police Command through its Public Relations Officer, Ahmed Wakil, a Superintendent of Police, had, in a statement, insisted that the detained monarch and the other six people have a case to answer over the incident.
