Zamfara State Governor Blames Porous Border on Incessant Banditry

Zamfara State Government has blamed the fresh onslaught by bandits and militiamen on communities across the state, on the “porous nature of our borders.”

Governor Bello Mohammed regretted that militiamen had made “dangerous incursions into some of our villages especially in Gummi, Bukkuyum, Anka and Maru local government areas.” He described the development as unfortunate.

In an official statement signed by Zailani Bappa, special adviser to the governor on Public Enlightenment, Media, and Communications, Governor Mohammed assured that steps were afoot by his administration to neutralize violent gangs and bandits operating in the state.
