Police Raise Alarm on ‘Heartless Elements’ Planning to Destabilise Zamfara
The Zamfara State Police Command wishes to notify the good people of the State on the intelligence report it got about the activities of some heartless and bloodthirsty individuals who drive pleasure when citizens of Zamfara State are killed or maimed.
These unpatriotic elements are not Comfortable of the relative peace achieved in the state, because that has conflicted with their selfish interest and personal aggrandisement.
Presently, such heartless people have started sponsoring some campaigns to project a very bad image of the state before the eyes of the international Community. Many instances are bound in which they portrayed the state in bad light.
The recent one was the attempt to sponsor a spontaneous demonstration in all the 14 LGAs of the State after distributing some fabulous amount of money for that purpose. Except in Shinkafi LGA, the other 13 LGAs, such attempt failed woefully.
In light of this, the Command wishes to reiterate that no amount of blackmail will deter the Police and other security agencies from carrying out their Constitutional duties of protecting the people and saving the State against the security challenges it found itself for a decade.
Investigation is currently ongoing with a view to exposing such criminal elements and will soon be dealt with according to the law of the land.
However, the Command is not unmindful of some security challenges and skirmishes here and there, but members of the public are living witnesses on the security progress achieved so far, and efforts are being intensified to continue with more vigour and enthusiasm to ensure peace and security of Zamfara State.
The Command calls on the peace loving people of the state to be wary of these people and continue to pray for the well being of the state. Also cooperate with the security agencies’ efforts to rid the state of all form of criminal elements.
