235 people killed in Zamfara in two hours as Governor recounts bandits killing spree
The Governor who was speaking yesterday in Jos the Plateau state capital when the Nigeria Governors’ Forum (NGF) paid a condolence visit to the Plateau state government over the recent killings by suspected herdsmen also threatened to call on the President to replace them.
While speaking on behalf of the governors, Governor Yari said the governors are looking at how to fight on a common front to defeat the challenges seeking to undermine the Nigeria state.
“I have done my best, so have my colleagues, the unfortunate thing is that security agents are not there until the deed has been done. We must do something as leaders; else the next target would be us, because people may turn against us.
“Between March and June in my state, we had 115 incidents and 435 people lost their lives, our people are suffering. Within two hours, 235 people were killed, 80 found in one place. In Plateau State since 2012, this is the largest. These people must be brought to book because people have taken things for granted for too long because no one was brought to book, this must change,” he said.
