“A lady preparing for her wedding and seeking for assistance from the emir approached him (Sama’ila) to be taken before the emir but instead of doing that, he lured her to a location with his friends where they gang-raped her,” Kwarbai stated.


According to the emirate’s spokesman, Sama’ila had been delisted and dismissed from the palace’s security details.

“Zazzau Emirate Council under the Emir of Zazzau, His Highness Malam Ahmed Nuhu Bamalli, CFR has ordered for the immediate dismissal of Sama’ila Abubakar Rimin Tsiwa (one of the palace guards, Dogari) from the services of the emirate,” the spokesman added.

Accordingly, the council said it had directed the police to launch investigations into the matter and prosecute the offenders.
