Mai Tangale Stool: 3 Killed, Property Destroyed As Crisis Deepens by Positivepoint(m): 12:23pm On Feb 21
Three persons were killed and property worth millions of naira destroyed in Billiri Local Government Area of Gombe State as the crisis over the appointment of a new Mai Tangale deepens.

Confirming the incident, the commissioner of police in the state, Ahmed Maikudi Shehu, said 10 suspects have been arrested.

Angry youths, mostly women and children, had blocked the Gombe-Yola highway, protesting what they described as delay in the appointment of the Mai Tangale by Governor Inuwa Yahaya.

The protest turned violent Friday evening when the protesters allegedly killed three persons, burnt houses, business premises and several mosques.

Meanwhile, in a live state-wide broadcast on Saturday shortly after an assessment tour to Billiri town, Governor Yahaya condoled with the families of the deceased and those who lost their property.

The governor pledged to compensate those who lost their property and vowed to apprehend the sponsors of the violence and those that were involved and ensure that they face the full wrath of the law.

He said no official pronouncement was made about any of the three candidates for the traditional stool when the violence erupted.

“The violence was orchestrated by some unpatriotic individuals who thought they could blackmail the government into announcing their preferred candidate. And let it be clear that it is within my powers as governor to appoint any of the three recommended candidates to become the new Mai Tangle.

“Let me also make it clear that our administration will never cow into any blackmail, threat, intimidation or witch-hunt from any individual or group, no matter how highly placed,” he said.

Yahaya added that the violence had left him with no option than to declare a 24-hour curfew to forestall further spread that may lead to loss of lives and destruction of property.

He revealed that the state government was withholding its decision on the appointment of a new Mai Tangale until normalcy returned to the affected communities.

He assured residents that government, in collaboration with relevant security agencies, had put in place, adequate measures to ensure the protection of lives and property of all the people in the state.

The clips of destruction of Muslim residence, market , place of worship and 3 death doesn't look like a protest.

The previous king was a Christian. Go and verify.

The whole thing has nothing to do with religion but the tendency with Mostly Hausa/Fulani playing politics with everything to subjugate the northern minority Christians. Most of these guys have been marginalized in their land by mostly immigrant Hausas and Fulani.

When the wicked rule, the people groan.

When the head is sick, the whole body suffers.

This is the condition of Naija at the moment.

May peace be restored.
