By; MOHAMMED MUNIRAT NASIR, Gusau
Zamfara State Governor, Dr Bello Mohammed Matawalle has assured of his determination to put an end to security breaches going on in some parts of the state.
Matawalle gave the assurance on Friday at the Salahuddeen Al-Ayyubi Jumaat Mosque, Gusau shortly after performing weekly Jummuah Prayers.
The governor urged the people of the state to continue to support the state government with accurate and reliable intelligence that will help greatly in the fight to end security challenges in the state.
Matawalle observed that members of the public most times have more intelligence information about the movement and activities of the criminals but are not sharing intelligence with the government for immediate and proper action.
“Citizens have great roles to play in the ongoing fight against banditry and other criminalities especially in the areas of providing accurate and reliable intelligence on the activities of the criminals that will lead to fishing them out from the society,” he said.
Matawalle specifically called on landlords to ensure giving house rent in accordance with state tenants laws.
He also charged members of the community to always report any suspicious movement to the security agencies for action which he said will go a long way in addressing the problem.
Matawalle appealed for more positive Prayers for government to overcome the resurfacing of the banditry attacks in some communities recently.
The governor assured the state government’s policy of Carrot and Stick approach will be maintained in the fight against banditry as dialogue will continue with those who accepted or are willing to accept the peace deals and repent while those who refuse to embrace the process will be dealt with till peace is fully achieved in the state.
