Zamfara Banditry: Committee indicts five Emirs, 33 district heads

A committee set up to find lasting solutions to banditry in Zamfara State, has revealed that there are concrete evidence showing that five Emirs have hands in the spate of banditry in which more than 6,319 men and women have been killed.

Chairman of the committee and former Inspector General of Police (IGP) Mohammed Abubakar who disclosed this, also said 33 district heads and several village chiefs were working with the bandits.

Abubakar, who made the disclosure on Friday, while submitting the committee’s report to Gov. Bello Matawalle in Gusau, did not publicly name the indicted traditional rulers.

According to him, 10 soldiers, some policemen and civil servants were discovered to have had their hands smeared in the banditry which lasted for about a decade in the state.

Abubakar, however, said some security personnel and one emir distinguished themselves creditably in the protection of the people.

He noted that the committee had recommended that the emir be conferred with national honour while the officers should be promoted to their next ranks.

Abubakar averred the 300-page report would be relevant to other state governments and the federal government in addressing security issues in the country.

Gov. Matawalle inaugurated the committee in July and its investigation covered between June 2011 and May 2019
