Days after gunmen attacked the Emir of Zamfara,s convoy, the Governor of the State, Bello Muhammad Matawalle, has said the terror attacks in the State have reduced drastically.
Matawalle said this on Sunday, in response to the accusations levelled by the All Progressives Congress APC that he was sponsoring bandits in Zamfara.
Faulting the APC’s accusations as malicious and insulting, Matawalle said the security situation in the northwest state has improved since he assumed leadership. “I find it insulting that the Apc is accusing me of sponsoring bandits in my own state. We all are living witnesses to the fact that during Apc’s tenure, Zamfara state was adjudged as a colony of banditry in the whole world”, he began.

“We are not claiming that insecurity has totally been eliminated in Zamfara but it is on record that terror attacks have reduced drastically in the state in less than two years than Apc’s unfortunate eight years when people were running away from the State. This is a malicious calumny by the ruling party, releasing a statement as sensitive as that, knowing fully how miserable they governed the state for the past years. Their statement is not only laughable but shows the type of leadership they have”, he said.
