Zamfara State Governor Bello Matawalle has urged the federal government to impose a state of emergency in the northern part of the country to put an end to the insurgency there.
This was revealed when the Governor met with the AIG in charge of Zone 10, Mr Ali Janga, who suggested that declaring a state of emergency in the north would be the best option for ensuring the safety of people and property.
According to him, the zone’s security concerns had reached an alarming level and needed to be addressed immediately.
He emphasized that the security agencies had lately been given N17 million to mobilize their personnel to security-prone regions.
Matawalle said the government was working to obtain the release of those who had been kidnapped in several communities in the state.
In response, AIG Ali Janga praised the state’s police and other security officers for their financial and spiritual support, asking them to further up their efforts.
He insisted that the police will continue to carry out their constitutional obligation of safeguarding people’s lives and property.
AIG Janga urged the government and the entire state’s population to provide the police with more assistance and cooperation in the fight against banditry.
