Zamfara State Governor, Abdulaziz Yari has thrown his weight behind the call on President Muhammadu Buhari to declare a state of emergency in the state.
According to the News Agency of Nigeria, Yari warned politicians against politicising the disturbing security situation in the state.
He said “The security men are doing their best. But, it is sad to know that some of the people involved in the kidnappings are close relatives or associates of the victims, which is part of the reasons the problem is persisting.
“We must all come together and expose anyone or group that is part of these hoodlums, and we should also pray for Allah’s intervention,” Yari said.
The News Agency of Nigeria reports that bandits had continued to beat security measures put in place by both the State and Federal governments.
