Governor Abdul’aziz Yari of Zamfara State says he has dropped his responsibility as Chief Security Officer of the state as he had no control over the security machinery in the state.
Speaking to newsmen in Talata-Mafara after the EID Mubarak prayers today June 15th, the governor said his decision was borne out of the seeming helplessness of the state government and the people over recurring killings in the state. Zamfara has witnessed a number of death as a result of ethnic clashes and cattle rustlers.
“We have been facing serious security challenges over the years, but in spite of being governor and Chief Security Officer of the state, I cannot direct security officers on what to do nor sanction them when they err. As Chief Security Officer, the nomenclature is just a name,” he said.
The governor lamented that it was disheartening that killings in the state had continued in spite of the President Muhammadu Buhari’s order to security agencies to end the incessant blood-letting across the country. According to the governor, since the president’s order, the killings have not stopped. In a week there were attacks in this state which claimed over 30 lives.
He said that the state government was spending huge amount of its resources on security but to no avail.
