Governor Bello Matawalle of Zamfara has directed the closure of all boarding secondary schools in the state.
The Governor who made the declaration during a special broadcast to the people of Zamfara said he remains appreciative of the effort of the federal government in fighting banditry and other criminal activities in the state.
He also appealed to the federal government to support Zamfara State more as it adopt strategies aimed at combatting the security challenges
Matawalle said despite the seeming setback, his administration will ever remain focused on its strategy of disarmament. A single bullet in the hands of the non-state rogue elements could result in severe harm to the innocent.
The Governor said he is of the conviction that the large cache of assorted weapons recovered through the disarmament process has made Zamfara State safer despite the recent unfortunate incidents.
Governor Matawalle further said the type of dangerous weapons recovered through the disarmament process would make the heart of any person of conscience to cringe
