Zamfara: Banditry Getting Worse, I Pray Allah Reveal Killers – Matawalle



Court Fixes Date For Suit Challenging Matawalle’s Defection

Governor Bello Matawalle of Zamfara State has lamented the latest bandits attack on local communities in the Northwest state.

Naija News recalls that about 60 persons were killed by bandits in Kadawa village in Zurmi LGA area of the state on Thursday night.

Speaking in a broadcast on Saturday, the Zamfara governor said the insecurity challenges in the state are getting worse.

According to Matawalle, banditry has reverted to how it used to be before his administration.

“In recent weeks, the act of banditry has reverted to the ugly dimensions it had, prior to the coming of my administration,” he said.

“The marauders kill without regard for any rules of sanity. Women, the elderly, and children are not spared.

“As a result, a large number of people have been displaced in nearly every town in the state.

“You are witnesses to what we have accomplished from the beginning of our administration, particularly the peace and reconciliation efforts that we initiated and achieved.

“As a result, we have been able to shift our violent narratives to one of optimism and peaceful coexistence. Unfortunately, things suddenly took a dramatic turn and things are getting worse by the day.

“It is clear that some invincible hands are plotting evil against our people with the goal of making our state as terrifying as it were in the years gone by.

“My constant prayer is for Allah to reveal those who are perpetrating these cruel atrocities against our people.”
