Also suspended along side the council chairman were his deputy, Baidu Kafin-Misau, and the Secretary, Usman Abdu.
No fewer than nine persons were killed on Monday while several others sustained varying degrees of injuries during a communal clash between Fulani farmers and herders in Zadawa village of Misau area council.
The clash was over ownership of land in the surrounding settlement where herders are located and have been grazing for several years although the land belongs to the government.
At a press conference shortly after a security meeting held at the Government House on Wednesday, the governor said the three council executives have been suspended.
Stakeholders notably, the Emir of Misau, traditional rulers, Miyetti Allah association, leaders of security agencies and some cabinet members attended the meeting.
“Looking at all the information at our disposal, we have decided that some decisive measures must be taken in order to avert the re-occurrence of this very ugly situation which we know is also brewing in other local governments and the Government of Bauchi will take a decisive decision to make sure we nip them in the bud.
“But in this particular case, we have decided to suspend the Caretaker Chairman of Misau local government area along with his deputy and Secretary to appoint an Administrator in the person of Isa Kufai, who was a former Chairman of Toro LGA.
“I have directed the Commissioner of Police to mobilize a mobile unit under his control and move to Misau, along with his colleague, the Commandant of the Nigeria and Security and Civil Defense Corps, so that we can provide security on the interim,” Governor Mohammed said.
