ZAMFARA STATE GOVERNMENT SEEKS ARMY SUPPORT
Mar 09, 2016
The Zamfara State government has sought the support of the Nigerian Army to tackle the daunting security challenges facing the state. The State Governor and Chairman, Nigeria Governors’ Forum, Alhaji Abdul’aziz Abubakar Yari, made the appeal recently when he paid a courtesy call on the Chief of Army Staff, Lieutenant General Tukur Yusufu Buratai, at the Army Headquarters. Governor Yari stated that activities of bandits in the State are beyond cattle rustling as the criminals are said to be using sophisticated weapons, thereby posing a security threat on four Local Government Areas of the state. He therefore requested for deployment of more troops in the state to curb incessant cattle rustling and other criminalities which have taken a new dangerous dimension in recent times, adding that the state government had earlier written to the Federal Government on the situation.
