From Ibrahim Sidi Muh’d, Gusau
Former Zamfara State gubernatorial candidate under the umbrella of the opposition APGA, Sani Abdullahi Shinkafi, said secret activities were on speed to consume more than recorded before in the state, if effort by the security agencies is not doubled to tackle it.
In a press briefing in his Gusau residence, Sani Shinkafi advised that, security agencies should listen to a recorded phone conversation between the leader of Fulani of Cheche village in the state and the close align of former Zamfara Governor, Alhaji Sani Gwamna Mayanchi.
“The conversation sounded a great threat to the security set up, therefore, the politician involved in such a nasty plan should be arrested, investigated and subsequently prosecuted for peace and tranquility to continue to reign in the state.
“We carefully learnt that apart from the politician already identified in that aspect, more members of the opposition APC were on their toes to destroy all the achievements made by the present administration of Bello Matawalle in collaboration with competent security agencies and the federal government.
“It has been established by the intelligence report that, some unpatriotic politicians have chosen to spent all they have to ensure a recovering Zamfara State remains a horrible bloodletting field even worst than those days of darkness”, Shinkafi has revealed.
Shinkafi further explained that, he communicated with the Inspector General of Police and all other security chiefs including Zamfara State Commissioner of Police not to relent to spare anybody behind plans to recruit bandits and other dangerous criminals back to the filthy businesses.
He also draw the attention of people of the state, to for the sake of driving the state into a safer but developed and lucrative position, disregard any political trick and deceitful efforts by any politician as it was aimed to politicise security issues in the state.
“Some unpatriotic politicians in the state were using every communication means to make money possibly to be used during the yet to come 2023 general elections. Formidable evidences have it that, huge monies have been looted from the government coffers.
“To cite an example of my claims, a former Secretary to the State Government (SSG), was heard live, claiming that the previous administration had spent the sum of N35 billion for the purchase of relief materials to cushion hardship for the teeming IDP’s.
“There had never been an IDP’s camp established anywhere across the 14 local government areas of the state by the previous government, but yet they gained guard to claim they have spent the said amount on the issue of entertaining the teeming IDP’s”, Shinkafi has challenged.
Sani Shinkafi further claimed that, “I am not registering my support for the current administration in order to achieve political gains despite my political difference with political party in power, but rather the relative peace enjoyed in the state achieved by the State Government deserved commendation.
