Written by on June 27, 2022

The Zamfara State Governor, Mohammed Matawalle, has directed residents of the state, particularly farmers to acquire guns to defend themselves against bandits and terrorists who appear to be ravaging the state.

The directive follows what the state government describes as the deteriorating security situation in parts of the state.

According to a statement by the Zamfara State Commissioner for Information, Mr Ibrahim Magaji Dosara, issued to journalists on Sunday, the governor has ordered the state commissioner of police to issue licences to residents who are willing and qualified to obtain guns to defend themselves against the marauding terrorists.

Matawalle in the statement said that the government would distribute 500 forms to each of the 19 emirates in the state for those willing to obtain such self-defence weapons.
