Zamfara Governor alleges plot to disrupt peace 

544

Zamfara State Governor, Bello Matawalle, has alleged that some individuals have concluded plans to breach the peace in the state by sponsoring protests across the 14 local governments in the state. 

The governor made this known in a statement signed by his Special Adviser, Public Enlightenment, Media and Communication, Zailani Bappa. 

According to the governor, these protests are aimed at causing disaffection amongst the citizens of the state. 

Zamfara has witnessed attacks by armed assailants who have sacked several communities and killed many residents in months. 

The attacks have however reduced since Matawalle assumed office. 

His government identified some of the attackers which it described as bandits and has held a series of peace negotiations with them. 

The Governor who came to office in May has tried to reconcile groups and also offered amnesty to some in a bid to restore peace in the state.
