LEADERSHIP reports that kidnap kingpin, Ado Aliero, was turbaned Sarkin Fulani by the emir of Yantodo in Zamfara State.
The event was reportedly attended by government officials and some security personnel operating within the area.
He was turbaned after the Nigerian Police declared him wanted and placed a N5m bounty on his head for killing and maiming residents of Zamfara State.
He was turbaned on 16 July 2022 barely two years after the Nigerian Police declared him wanted and placed N5 million bounty on him.
Aliero who is the leader of one of the ruthless groups responsible for the killings, maiming and kidnappings in local communities of Zamfara and Katsina states was turbaned in an event fully attended by State government officials and the security personnel amid wild celebration of motorbike stunts.
In June 2020, the then commissioner of Police in Katsina State, Sanusi Buba, while declaring Mr Alero wanted said: “The command hereby wishes to declare Adamu Aliero, 45, of Yankuzo village of Tsafe local government area of Zamfara State wanted.
“Aliero, is a notorious leader of groups of bandits terrorising Katsina and Zamfara states.
“Similarly, the command has placed bounty of N5 million on his head, dead or alive.
“Any person or group of persons that have useful information that may lead to his arrest, should please report to the nearest police station or call these numbers: 08033666059 or 08035448128 or 08076666207,” he told reporters.
