Notorious terror kingpin, Ado Aleru has been turbaned as the Sarkin Fulani (the chief of the Fulani) of the Yandoton Daji Emirate in Zamfara State.
This is coming hours after the occasion was exposed in a publication where it was reported that the decision to give Aleru a traditional title was aimed at finding lasting peace in the crisis-ravaged Tsafe and Yandoton Daji emirates and other areas of Zamfara and Katsina states, which the terrorist had constantly attacked with his fighters.
According to Premium Times, the decision to make Aleru a chief followed dialogue between the elders of the emirate and the terror leader.
The elders of the emirate had in March asked the deadly bandit to stop attacking communities in the emirate.
A resident of the area who does not want his name mentioned said: “Aleru has gathered a lot of money and cattle, and he knows if this (fight with soldiers) continues, he may end up losing the cattle and his wealth. As the leader of most of the bandits in Yankuzo and Munhaye axis, and to a large extent, Tsafe area, he felt it would be better to reach a truce.”
However, despite the outcry and police records, Ado Aleru was Turbaned as Sarkin Fulani (The King of Fulani) of the Yandoton Daji Emirate In Zamfara state.
The event reportedly took place around 3:30pm on Saturday 16, July 2022.
