Sokoto Gov Orders Arrest Of Musician Who Released Song Praising Bandit Kingpin, Ayuba

Bandits Kingpin, Bello Turji

LAGOS DECEMBER 19TH (LAGOS DECEMBER 19TH (NEWSRANGERS)-Sokoto State governor, Aminu Waziri Tambuwal has ordered the arrest of a musician, Adamu Ayuba for praising a bandit kingpin, Bello Turji in his music.

In a viral music audio, Ayuba praised the terrorist, Turji, describing him as “a lion, untouchable and a great leader”.

The governor’s order comes three days after the song went viral on several social media platforms.

Commenting on the song, Governor Tambuwal said, “We ordered for his arrest to serve as a deterrent. 

“This further informs why I advised that the President and Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces should consider, because in those places where there are security challenges, the inhabitants are willing to be trained on weapons handling.”

Some residents of Sokoto who condemned the song, described the action of the musician as unpatriotic.

Squadron leader, Aminu Bala, said, “The song is capable of misleading young people to begin to idolise or even pay allegiance to the terrorist.”

Another man resident in Northern Nigeria, Abdullahi Bala, “This is a very sad development; and it is coming at a time of acute security deterioration. As it is, one cannot move from Sokoto here to Illeila, yet someone is praise-singing a terrorist.”
