Baba Ali, a resident of Fagge, said that the tussle had hurt the integrity of the traditional leadership as politicians that come and go manipulate who became Emir, “which should not be the case”.

Ali enjoined the people of the state to accept the new Emir and pray for peace, security and unity in the state and the country.
