Executive Governor of Zamfara State, Dr. Bello Mohammed (Matawalle)

Zamfara State Governor, Dr Bello Mohammed Matawalle has raised alarm that intelligence reports indicate that some disgruntled people in the state are planning to use the dreaded Boko Haram Sect to cause mayhem in the state.
Matawalle added that security report shows that the misguided elements are currently collaborating with Boko Haram Sect in order to scuttle the relative peace being currently enjoyed as a result of the peace and dialogue process initiated by his administration. 
The governor made the revelation through the Director General, Press Affairs, Malam Idris Yusuf Gusau while addressing journalists at the Nigerian Union of Journalists (NUJ) secretariat in Gusau.
Matawalle added that the Boko Haram members  have been recruited from far and wide to carry out these heinous acts slated for between Monday 23rd September to 25th October 2019.
“According to the intelligence report, the cruel and mischievous elements have perfected plans to launch the attacks in seven local Government areas of the state and in other strategic places within the state capital. According to the report two important personalities of the the state are also targeted for elimination should this dastardly act succeed”, he said.
Matawalle described the unpatriotic attitudes of some evil politicians and their collaborators to cause mayhem and destroy the lives and property of  innocent citizens ostensibly to gain  personal relevance as unacceptable and condemnable.
The Governor appealed to the people not to panic as state government and the security agencies in the state have taken all necessary steps to address the situation through more security reinforcements in all the nooks and crannies of the State. 
He advise  commercial vehicle drivers and motorcyclists to be more security conscious and vigilant and report any suspicious movement of persons, groups or goods to the Security agencies in the state.
