According to the Director-General, Press Affairs and Public Relations of the Assembly, Mustapha Jafaru Kaura, their suspension was to enable the Assembly to undertake a proper investigation into the allegations raised against them.
“They are also to appear before the House Committee on ethics and privileges in conjunction with security agencies that are assigned by law to investigate them.
“These are part of the resolutions reached just now at the House plenary presided over by the Speaker of the House, Rt Hon Nasiru Mu’azu Magarya under matters of urgent public importance,” Kaura said.
However, the lawmaker representing Maru North, Hon Yusuf Alhassan Kanoma, told the Zamfara State House of Assembly to see to it that the allegations raised were properly investigated.
Kanoma said his suspended collegues were jubilatung during the kidnap saga of the father of the Speaker, late Alhaji Mu’azu Abubakar Magarya.
