With the rebuttal of the purported installation of one Alhaji Samaila Abdullahi as the Sarkin Kerana, by the unknown Bukuru emirate in Jos South LGA of Plateau state has doused the tension it  generated.

Senator Istifanus Gyang representing Plateau north in the red chambers of the national assembly said this in a press release signed by his Special Assistant, Media &Protocol, Musa Ibrahim Ashoms.

According to the statement,  the  Senator had “met and conferred with the Plateau State Commissioner of Police who confirmed that the said imposter has been accosted by the Police”

The state government in a statement signed by the  commissioner of information and communication,  Dan Manjang affirmed the “obvious, a non existent Bukuru Emirate Council. The government further affirmed that the said action was the handiwork of mischief makers and crisis merchants”

“Following this revelations, Senator Gyang observes that rebuttal of the attempted mischief has doused frayed nerves and rising tension across the state thus averting what was clearly a grave threat to peace, distortion of extant customary practices, traditions and established convention.

“The Senator explains that while residency rights are constitutional and  accrue to all citizens, customary rights are aboriginal and hereditary in nature and are therefore not transferable”, the statement stressed.
