He accused the Federal government of plotting to hide under the killings to declare emergency rule in Zamfara in order to cause chaos in 2019.
“With the emergency rule, there will only be presidential and national ssembly elections in the state in February next year while governorship and state house of assembly elections will be postponed till May
“The federal government should admit its failure and apologise to the people of Zamfara state, who were left at the mercy of armed bandits as using the killings to achieve political goal is not only wicked but inhuman.
