The Chairman of Anti-thuggery committee in Zamfara Bello Bakyasuwa Maradun said his committee is going to use the Anti-Thuggery Marshals to enforce the resolution of the state house of assembly if it orders the relocation of Zamfara PDP Secretariat based in Gusau.
Bakyasuwa who stated this during a special interview session with Thunder Blowers on Saturday in Gusau insisted that he knew the PDP to be a law-abiding party and once the state assembly passes its resolution he expected that PDP will honorably vacate to another choice location to avoid confrontation with the authorities.
” I believed PDP will be law-abiding and respect the resolution of the state house of assembly if it is passed because if they refused, my committee will use its Marshals to enforce such resolution in the interest of peace and justice to the commuters using the road where the headquarters is located and in the interest of saving the Ministry of Finance and public schools that are around the location of the secretariat”.
He also said soonest his committee will read the “Riot Act” to all the political parties and insisted that no supporter of a political party shall be allowed to carry a gun and go to the campaign ground with it noting that, “” if his marshals sighted anyone with a gun at the public gathering including campaign grounds they are going to fire him on the spot”.
“We are to make sure that no party supporter is allowed to use any weapon to threaten the lives of the innocent people during campaign. A license to bear arms is issued for a purpose, not political campaign. Our committee will spare no one if he goes against the law”.
‘Remember there is an order enforced which ban the use of fire arms including guns. When the Governor approved our rules, we are going to read our riot act to the political parties so that they can caution their supporters on the dos and don’ts expected of them”
