Stakeholders foil Plans to install emir in Jos

Plans by some people to install an emir in Bukuru suburb of Jos South Local Government Area of Plateau state failed at the week end as those behind the plot could not go ahead with the agenda.

It would be recalled that an invitation cardcalling on members of the public for a purported installation of one Alhaji Samaila Abdullahi as the Sarkin Kerana,was earlier circulated in Jos and other parts of Plateau state.

The circulation generated tension in the city of Jos with many stakeholders including the state government, lawmakers and council chairmen condemning the action.

The stakeholders who described the development as the handiwork of mischief makers meant to cause fresh crises in the state made it clear that no emirate system existed anywhere in Jos.

While noting that the said imposter has been accosted by the Police, the stakeholders called on the citizens to respect the tradition of their host communities in the interest of peace in the state
