The law maker’s “inappropriate conduct” was according to the letter written at Hausa, not just contempt for the Emir of Bauchi but also district heads and other holders of the Emir traditional title.

“The emirate council under the chairmanship of Emir of Bauchi, has carefully deliberated on your actions, which are disrespect to the emir, political leaders, members of the council, district heads and emirs,” the letter reads.

“The council cited examples of how you appeared before emirs in Alkebba (a kind of regal robe) and Kandiri (a kind of staff), despite being cautioned against this. What happened on Saturday May 15, 2021 at Government House showed how you disrespect the emir, the traditional institution and the governor.”
