In what appeared a baffling and difficult situation to explain and comprehend, a wanted notorious Bandits kingpin, Ado Aleru was on Saturday turbaned as Sarkin Fulani (The King of Fulani) of Yandoton Daji Emirate Council of Zamfara State.
The same Aleru, who is on the most wanted list of the Nigeria police was surprisingly given a high-profile security escort by officers and men of the Nigeria Police at the ceremony which took place at about 3:30 pm on Saturday, July 16, 2022, in Zamfara State.
In the letter conveying the appointment as the new Sarkin Fulani Yandoton Daji, the emir said his turbaning was in line with the demand for peace and reconciliation efforts highly needed for the people in the Emirate, Tsafe Local Government Area, Zamfara State, and Nigeria as a whole.
The turbaned Ado Aleru is believed to be the leader of the bandit group that is terrorizing both Katsina and Zamfara States communities.
Ado Aleru was declared wanted by the Katsina Police Command in 2019 with a bounty of five million Naira on his head just as it also declared one Adamu Alero popularly known as Yankuzo wanted in June 2020 for being the mastermind of the deadly attack on Kadisau, a community where a village head was slaughtered and his body mutilated and over 20 others killed during the attack.
Accordingly, another reward of five million Naira was announced as a reward for anyone that could provide information leading to his arrest.
