A Supreme Court Judge, Justice Sidi Bage, has emerged as the 17th Emir of Lafia Bare-Bari in Nasarawa State.

This followed the appointment of the judge by the state governor, Tanko Almakura, on Tuesday, according to Channels TV report.

Justice Bage’s appointment was announced at the Council Chambers of the Government House in Lafia, the state capital shortly after a closed-door meeting of the Council of Chiefs in Nasarawa.

His emergence was as a result of the demise of the late Emir of Lafia, Dr Isa Agwai I, on January 10, 2019.

The Supreme Court judge will succeed the late emir with a first-class status after Dr Agwai served for 44 years on the throne.

The Council of Kingmakers selected Justice Bage from the Dallah Dunama Royal House, having scored four votes to beat his closest rival who is the son of the late emir, Prince Musa Agwai, who got one vote.
