The retired military officer further said that he has already petitioned the Police and copied the State APC acting Chairman, Lawali M Liman and the then Tsafe Local Government Council Chairman, Alhaji Aliyu Abubakar MC.

He further informed the Governor that he has already filed a suit in a competent court of law to seek for justice on behalf of the victims.

He also appealed to President Muhammadu Buhari and Governor Bello Matawalle to ensure that justice is done to the deceased persons and their suffering families so that it can serve as deterrent to all politicians who are aiding insecurity in the country.

Welcoming Col Yandoto and his supporters into the PDP Governor Bello Matawalle said his administration is determined to end insecurity in the state expressing confidence that with the intensified prayers offered by the good people of Zamfara the challenges will soon become a thing of the past.

He also assured them of level playing ground in the PDP and called on them to continue to support his administration’s effort in its fight against banditry and other criminal activities.
