Governor Bello Mohammed (Matawallen Maradun) is deeply saddened by a recent bandits’ attack on some communities in Bukkuyum and Maru Local Government areas of the state.
Governor Matawalle said the dastardly and cowardly attack is coming at a time when peace is fast improving in the state, but will not deter the efforts of his administration at achieving it.
“It is unfortunate that this attack is coming at a time when we are experiencing improved peace in the state where we were able to host millions of people on an important religious event without a single incidence”, Governor Matawalle observed.
“However, this and other isolated cases of banditry across the state will not deter our efforts at ensuring a peaceful Zamfara State, an oath we have taken to pursue with our fullest capability”, Governor Matawalle assured citizens of the state.
While condoling the the families of those whose lives were lost in the senseless attack, Governor Matawalle ordered the Ministry for Humanitarian Affairs and Disaster Management to immediately release relief materials to all victims of the attack and their families.
Security operatives in the state yesterday, reported that a surprise attack was launched on Juyi and Doruwa communities of Bungudu Local Government and Ganar Kiyawa of Bukkuyum Local Government areas respectively, where many lives were reportedly lost and many others got injured.
