Traditional Rulers Sabotaging Peace Efforts In Zamfara – Governor
Zamfara State Governor Matawalle

Zamfara State Governor, Bello Matawalle has expressed that some traditional rulers are sabotaging the peace efforts of the State.

The governor made this accusation at a meeting with the heads of security agencies in the state, religious clerics, traditional rulers, and journalists at the Government House in Gusau on Thursday.

He stated that the traditional rulers were not playing their expected roles in the fight against banditry.

He said this has led to the recent deterioration of insecurity in the state.

The Governor expressed that some traditional rulers were aiding the illegal activities of outlawed vigilante groups in their domains.

He said this has led to the provocation of reprisal attacks by bandits.

The governor also condemned a statement by the chairman of the state’s traditional rulers’ council, the Emir of Anka, Attahiru Ahmad, in which he challenged the state government to allow citizens to bear arms for self defence, since the government had failed in protecting the citizens.

The governor said, “it is discouraging to have a respected personality like the state chairman Council of Chiefs to grant an interview with journalists to challenge the efforts of the government and security operatives.”
