Bala Mohammed, governor of Bauchi state, has accused some members of the traditional institution in the state of sponsoring criminality.

The governor made the accusation in Darazo LGA of the state while distributing some empowerment items and cash to youths and women in the area.

He said the actions of the traditional rulers pose a threat to the lives and property of the people, warning that anyone found wanting would be seriously dealt with.

He said the state government would no longer tolerate any compromise that would keep endangering the lives of its citizens.


Mohammed assured residents that the government was prepared to flush out all the people sponsoring or aiding criminality in the state.

“Some of the members of our traditional institutions are compromised, allowing strange people, people with criminal backgrounds just because of the small peanuts they will get,” Mohammed said.

“We will not spare anybody, even though I am a member of the traditional institution.


“If anybody is found wanting, we will discipline him because we will not allow the traditional institutions to compromise and bring people that will make our lives and property compromised.

“I also want to say to our people that we should always be together, we should eschew rumour mongering, hatred, treachery and mischief.

“I know some leaders of the state who are busy bringing criminals to the state. I will talk when the time comes but certainly, we are not afraid of them.

“You’ve seen what is manifesting in Bauchi recently, criminality everywhere, kidnapping and stealing. We have a security board and we know those behind it.”
