Crime and Security

No miner has been kidnapped since banditry began in Zamfara- Governor

 

The Zamfara State Governor, Abdulaziz Yari has linked the activities of miners in the state to the kidnapping and banditry which has claimed many lives, saying not one miner has been kidnapped or killed since the killings began.

The governor who made this assertion, Tuesday, while addressing newsmen in his residence was reacting to the recent ban by the federal government on the mining activities and miners in Zamfara and other states endowed with such natural resources. He described the ban as a welcome development, and a step toward addressing the insecurity across the nation.

Yari briefed the press shortly after an emergency security meeting between the government and all the security chiefs in the state, including the Brigade Commander of the Nigerian Army, Gusau.

He explained that the measure taken by the Federal government in that respect will help in no small measure toward bringing to an end to the activities of the armed bandits who have almost taken over the affairs of the state.

“What the people have been saying about these miners has become true that of all the years this problem has been in the state, no miner has been affected, and these miners are also in the bush, but to our dismay and surprise, none of them has been kidnapped, and whenever the security agents attack them (the hoodlums) they will be sate in the hands of the miners,” he said.

According to the governor, his government in collaboration with all the security chiefs as well as the traditional rulers in the state are joining hands to ensuring that the calamity which has claimed thousands of lives destroying properties of innocent people has been put to rest.

The governor who was in company of the commissioner of police and the DSS stated that there is no doubt that the issue of mining has contributed much in the escalation of the insurgency, and that the ban on it will prove the government right.

Also contributing, the commissioner of police, Mr Celestine Okoye reiterated the determination of his command as well as all other sister security agencies in the state of their readiness toward addressing the issue once and for all.
