Matawalle Bello, Zamfara State Governor, has reacted to the allegation by the All Progressives Congress (APC) that he is a sponsor of bandits in his state.
MERIDIAN SPY reported days ago Yekini Nabena, APC Spokesperson, alleged that a North-West governor is behind the heightened cases of banditry, abductions, and other violent crimes in the region.
But in a series of tweets on Sunday, Matawalle described the allegation as insulting, arguing that Zamfara was adjudged ‘a colony of banditry in the whole world’ during the ruling party’s tenure in the state.
“I find it insulting that the Apc is accusing me of sponsoring bandits in my own state. We all are living witnesses to the fact that during Apc’s tenure, Zamfara state was adjudged as a colony of banditry in the whole world,” he tweeted.
“We are not claiming that insecurity has totally been eliminated in Zamfara but it is on record that terror attacks have reduced drastically in the state in less than two years than Apc’s unfortunate eight years when people were running away from the State.
“This is a malicious calumny by the ruling party, releasing a statement as sensitive as that, knowing fully how miserable they governed the state for the past years. Their statement is not only laughable but shows the type of leadership they have.
“Alhamdulillah for the successful rescue of students kidnapped from Government Science Secondary School Kankara, Katsina State. To God be the Glory.”
