The statement reads in part: “This is to inform the general public that Zazzau Emirate is not unaware of the general concern and worry of the good people of Zazzau Emirate, friends and associates over the above posting through the social media.
“We are using the same media to assure all that the Emirate will come up with all facts and figures on the matter at a later time when such information will not be subjudice.
“However, the public may wish to know that there were four (4) groups contesting the ownership of the compensation on the affected buildings at Jama’atu College Kofar Kona, Zaria and in order to forestall any breach of Law and Order, the Emirate had to intervene by collecting the cheque and keeping it in its custody until after the court would have made appropriate ruling on the matter.”
