Governor Bello Matawalle of Zamfara State has revealed the identity of those behind banditry in the state.

According to him, power-drunk politicians from the state, but resident in Abuja are to blame for the incessant kidnappings in the state.

He vowed to arrest any politician who enters the state with the intention to use thugs to foment trouble.

Recall that Matawalle had earlier stated that nobody can claim to be above the law of the land, saying that he had drawn a battle line with the enemies of peace in the state.

Matawalle disclosed this at the Government House in Gusau, the state capital, when the Nigeria Governors’ Forum (NGF)’s delegation led by Governor Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti State visited him over the release of 279 Jangebe schoolgirls on Tuesday, March 2.

Matawalle cautioned that nobody is a sacred cow or untouchable, stressing that he is now in charge of the affairs of Zamfara State, challenging any of the politicians to dare him and see the consequences.

The governor had said on Sunday, February 28, when the federal government delegation visited him at the Government House, that many people would be surprised when the sponsors of banditry would be exposed. He maintained that many prominent personalities were solidly behind banditry in the state and that their sins would soon find them out.
