The State government suspended Marafa as the Emir for conferring the traditional title on the notorious bandit leader.

Isa added that the bandit kingpin had murdered over 100 people in Katsina, including women and children.

He said, “We are looking for Aleru because of the acts of terrorism he committed in the town of Kadiso where he killed over 100 locals. We were together with former Police Commissioner, Sanusi Buba, and journalists at Kadiso where we saw how he killed people including women and children, as well as destroying food items and animals.

“This prompted the Katsina Police Command to issue a statement that whosoever apprehends Aleru, either dead or alive, would be given N5 million. This matter still stands. We are looking for him and anyone who sees him should report to us. We are charging him for committing acts of terrorism in Kadiso, and in other communities also. He had also, kidnapped people and collected ransom.”

The State government has distanced itself from the title conferred on Alero and suspended the Emir.
