The All Progressives Congress, APC in Zamfara State is quite worried about the rising crime rate there, claiming that residents are getting thorns instead of apples from their fields.
The party said the administration of Governor Dauda Lawal is handling security matters in a disgraceful fashion, with allegations that terrorist violence has made killing innocent people in Gusau, the state capital, all too common.
Malam Yusuf Idris Gusau, the Party’s publicity secretary, delivered a press statement to journalists in Gusau in which he made these claims.
Bandits “had the effrontery to move through farms to attack a police station in Bungudu, killing a policeman just as they simultaneously attacked Kwatar village killing scores as reported by many media outlets,” the statement continued.
Concerns were voiced by the State House of Assembly, which said, “It seems there is no government in the state due to the disdainful way the bandits are having a field day in their killing spree.”
“A few weeks ago, some cops were killed near Bungudu, and early last week, some innocent residents were apparently slaughtered at Boko village in Zurmi local government; the same situation is claimed to be occurring in Mada, Wonaka, and Ruwan Bore.
“The PDP-led government under Dauda Lawal is doing nothing but lamenting, which is a sign of failure on the side of the government,” while “the wave of insecurity is blowing all over the state, including to Bukkuyum and Anka.”
“We are still perplexed as to why he resorted to appointing a SA on finance and other social issues while neglecting the security of life and property of the citizens”
Instead of “just visiting different security formations without any work plan on how to address the security situation in the state where our people are being killed on a daily basis,” “we are calling on him to as a matter of urgency appoint security aides that will assist him.”
To those who have been uprooted, may their circumstances improve from what they are now, and may the spirits of the departed rest in peace with their loved ones.
