Matawalle gives 7-day ultimatum for return of illegal arms by Zamfara residents


Zamfara State Governor, Bello Matawalle, has ordered all residents of the state to handover illegal firearms in their possession to a nearby police station within the next seven days.

In a series of tweets on Wednesday, Matawalle also directed the state’s police and other security services to implement President Muhammadu Buhari’s shoot-on-sight order against those bearing illegal arms.

He said only those approved by law or the security agencies are to carry guns and other sophisticated weapons, and anyone found in unlawful possession of guns should be shot on the spot.

Matawalle added that his administration will support the police and other security agencies with all the necessary logistics to discharge their duties effectively.
