Kano State Governor, Abba Yusuf, has sacked the Commissioner for Lands, Adamu Aliyu, over what can be described as unguarded comments.
Aliyu had threatened tribunal judges in the state, asking them to choose between money or their lives over claims that the judges had been bribe.
Recall that Aliyu had at a special prayer session on Friday, held for the success of Yusuf, at the tribunal threaten that any judge who decides to receive a bribe would have to pay with his or her life.
In the viral video in which he spoke in Hausa language, the commissioner also threatened anyone who tries to contend for the governorship position with death.
But in a statement on Friday, the Commissioner for Information, Baba Dantiye, told journalists at the Kano State Government House that Governor Yusuf respects and takes the judiciary in high esteem and would not condone any disrespect to them.
Aside from the commissioner, the governor also sacked his Special Advisor on Youth and Sports, Aliyu Yusuf.
