Authentic chairman warns ‘impostor’ over false claims to Kaura Namoda group

The Chairman of the Concerned Youths of Kaura Namoda and Birnin Magaji Federal Constituency, Zahraddeen Dahiru Usman, has asserted his position as the legitimate leader of the forum.

This comes in the wake of the group’s recent letter to President Bola Tinubu, the National Assembly, and security agencies addressing the escalating insecurity in their constituency.

Contrarily, Zahraddeen Dahiru Nakazalle posted a video on social media yesterday, denying authorship of the letter and disputing the leadership.

In a statement signed by Zahraddeen Dahiru Usman and shared journalists on Monday night, condemned the actions of unnamed individuals, specifically Nakazalle, whom he accused of falsely claiming the chairmanship of the group.

He said, “I, Zahraddeen Dahiru Usman (Saka Jiki ward of Kaura Namoda), remain the authentic chairman.

“Please, Zahraddeen Dahiru Nakazalle should desist from claiming to be the chairman of the Concerned Youths of Kaura Namoda and Birnin Magaji.”

Speaking on the letter, Zahraddeen Dahiru Usman explained that the reason he wrote the letters to the President is because bandits have stormed his village, killing people, burning houses, shops, cars, and belongings.

“Not only in the village alone, but also in Kaura Namoda and Birnin Magaji. Life has become meaningless and people have lost hope in the leadership of Hon. Jaji.”

Clarifying further the reasons behind his recent letter to President Bola Tinubu, detailing the dire security situation in his constituency, Usman explained that bandits have terrorized his village, committing acts of violence that include killing residents, and burning houses, shops, cars, and other belongings.

“The situation is not limited to my village alone but extends to Kaura Namoda and Birnin Magaji. Life has become meaningless, and people have lost hope in the leadership of Hon. Aminu Sani Jaji,” Usman stated.

He further alleged that two of his associates, Aminu Ibrahim Kasuwar Daji, a serving member of the House of Assembly for Kaura Namoda West, and Hon. Hali Sidi, have been arrested amidst the ongoing crisis.

“We wish to reiterate our call that Hon. Aminu Jaji should come out boldly and explain to the world his alleged links with the bandits and their accomplices, who happen to be his political boys. Therefore, Jaji should stop chasing shadows.”
