I’ll arrest Yari if killings continue in Zamfara says Gov Matawalle

Governor Bello Matawalle of Zamfara State said he would arrest a former state governor, Abdul’aziz Yari, if there were any further killing of innocent people in the state.

According to Punch, Matawalle said this on Friday in a statement while receiving some firearms surrendered by repentant bandits at the Government House, Gusau.

Matawalle alleged that it was anytime Yari visited the state that there were attacks and killing of people.

According to Matawalle, the recent killings in Karaye village was the third time the former governor visited the state. He alleged that his predecessor’s visit was followed by a security breach, which he described as “too much of coincidence.”

The governor, therefore, instructed security agencies in the state to arrest and prosecute anybody found to be responsible for  the killings, saying he would not allow “some failed politicians” to destroy the state for their personal interests.

When contacted for comments, the Special Adviser to Yari on Media, Alhali Ibrahim Dosara, declined to comment, stressing that only the Publicity Secretary Committee Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Alhali Ibrahim Magaji, could comment on the matter.

However, several attempts made to speak with Magaji did not yield any result.
