Governor Bello Mohammed Matawalle of Zamfara State has vowed to demolish any house where bandits’ informants or weapons suppliers are living in the state.

The Governor stated this when he received his Sokoto State Counterpart, Aminu Waziri Tambuwal with his Council members who came to commiserate with the government and people over the recent bandits attack in some parts of the state.

Alhaji Matawalle said he has given directive for serious punitive measures including the demolition of any house where informants, weapons suppliers and people aiding banditry activities were residing in the state with immediate effect.

He said the action became necessary in order to fully address the resurgence of armed banditry activities in some parts of the state.

The Governor urged traditional rulers in the state to keep vigil and monitor the activities of landlords in giving out houses for rent, and to report any suspicious movement to security agencies for immediate action.

In his remarks, Governor Aminu Waziri Tambuwal said he was in the State to commiserate with the government and people over the recent killing of innocent souls which he described as “devastating and tragic.”
