Governor Bello Matawalle of Zamfara state has accused politicians in the state of being happy with the banditry in the state.
Speaking with traditional rulers, religious scholars and representatives of security agencies among other stakeholders in the government house in Gusau, Matawalle lamented that attacks happens when he travels out of the state.
“As I am speaking to you right now, I received text messages that, 13 people were killed in Bingi and 11 others were kidnapped in Nahuche, all in the Bungudu local government area,” he said.
“I also received another message just now that, some people are staging a demonstration between Anka and Jangebe. Another report reaching me right now indicated that the Yansakai have slaughtered two Fulani herdsmen in Maradun local government.
“I wonder what is happening, but I am not surprised because I know that there are some politicians who are always happy to hear that some people are killed in Zamfara.
“Let me send a strong warning to them, that as from today, I will take a very drastic action against those politicians who are sabotaging our security efforts.”
