The Zamfara Government has said that a total of 3,526 persons were killed by armed bandits in the state in the last five years.

“Nearly 500 villages have also been devastated and 8,219 persons injured, some are still in critical condition,” the governor said.

The governor, who was represented by the Secretary to the State Government, Prof. Abdullahi Shinkafi, also said that over 13,000 hectares of farmlands were either destroyed or made useless as the farmers can no longer farm there.

Daily Trust in its Front Page Comment of Thursday, 11th April noted that, “North Western Nigeria is in the throes of an existential challenge which calls for prompt action to avoid a situation that is capable of making a bad situation even worse. Statistics of human development for the region are already some of the worst in the country and the current rule of bandits across large swathe of the area is creating a big economic mess with basic activities like trading, travel,crop farming and animal husbandry near impossible. This follows many years of low level rustling and kidnappings which has further pauperized one of the country’s poorest regions.

Now added to that is the increasing bestiality in some of the banditry like the reported gauging of eyes of 8 passengers in a commercial bus on the dreaded Funtua-Birnin Gwari road just 2 days ago. In the space of another 2 days this week, up to 60 members of vigilante groups in Kankara and Dandume local governments of Katsina state were killed in a gruesome manner by bandits who rule the roost”.

Several operations have been launched without achieving the success of ending the reign of terror in the region. We are demanding that the President, who is the Grand Commander of the Armed Forces deploy available resources to flush out the bandits. We are also asking the President to order the immediate relocation of the IGP to the region until normalcy returns.

The Police should arrest and prosecute bandits and their sponsors/collaborators.
