Hold Yari responsible for 3 million illegal arms in Zamfara – Matawalle

Zamfara state governor, Dr. Bello Mohammed Matawalle has called on security agencies to hold ex-governor Abdul’Aziz Yari Abubakar responsible for proliferation of 3 million illegal arms which the All Progressives Congress (APC) claimed are in the hands of bandits in Zamfara state.

Matawalle during a press conference in Gusau by the Director General, Press Affairs, Malam Yusuf Idris Gusau said the claim by the Secretary, Zamfara stste APC Publicity Committee, Alhaji Ibrahim Maigandi GidanGoga that there are over 3 million arms and ammunition in the hands of Fulani bandits is a confirmation that the ex-governor and his subordinates knows much about banditry in the state.

“GidanGoga who spoke at the press conference confirmed to the journalists in attendance that there are three million guns in the bushes, this has vindicated Matawalle’s statement that the former governor has a hand in the criminal activities and we want the security agencies to quickly invite GidanGoga, so that he can lead them to where these weapons are for collection”, he said.

The DG media added that claims by Yari supporters was aimed at diverting the mindsets of the people from the truth about those behind banditry in the state.

“In 2013 when Yari, then as governor purchased firearms, one will wonder where these weapons are now, and lastly, it was the same Yari that recruited 8,000 Yansakai from across the state, so if these carnages which have been confirmed by security agencies are being caused by the Yansakai, who do you think would be the one controlling and directing them”, he asked.

He said the refusal of Yari and his cabinet members to appear before the former Inspector General of Police (IGP), Mohammed Dahiru Abubakar led committee to find lasting solutions to the banditry activities in the state is an affirmation that Yari does not want peace in Zamfara state.
