The Zamfara House of Assembly has suspended two of its members, Yusuf Muhammad (APC-Anka) and Ibrahim Tukur (APC-Bakura) for allegedly aiding banditry in the state.
This followed the adoption of a motion by Yusuf Kanoma (APC- Maru North) at Tuesday’s plenary in Gusau.
“One of them is suspected to have supplied information to bandits leading to the death of one of our lawmakers, Muhammad Ahmad, representing Shinkafi Constituency, who was killed on his way to Kano few months ago.
“The other was seen rejoicing after the kidnapp of our Speaker’s father, who died in bandits captivity,”he said.
Contributing, the Majority Leader, Alhaji Faruku Dosara, said that the allegations must be treated seriously and called for a thorough investigation by the House.
Dosara suggested that the House should mandate one of its committees to investigate the matter and report back.
