Taraba State Government has sacked Alhaji Haruna Kawuwa who is the husband of Safiya who died along with eight others in a stampede during the APC presidential rally in Jalingo last Thursday.
Haruna Kawuwa, before his sack, was Head of Local Government Administration (HOLGA) in Ardo-Kola  Local Government Council in the state.
Haruna’s sack was contained in a letter with reference no LGSCSAR/S/vol1334 and  dated 13 February 2019. It was signed by the Permanent Secretary Local Government Service Commission, Malam Lawal Yakubu.
The letter, however, did not disclose  the offence committed by late Safiya’s husband but it was gathered that Governor Darius gave the order for the sacking of Malam Haruna for allowing his wife to attend an APC rally.
The junior brother of Mr. Abel Peter Diah, Speaker of Taraba State House of Assembly has been appointed to replace Malam Haruna.
Meanwhile, All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state has condemned the sacking of Malam Haruna Kawuwa.
The publicity secretary of the party, Mr Aaron Artimas said the action of the state government was undemocratic and inhumane.
