5 Emirs, 33 District Heads, Top Military Officers Complicit in Zamfara Banditry

A committee set up by Governor Bello Matawalle of Zamfara State to find solutions to banditry and other security challenges in the state has indicted top military officers and traditional rulers for complicity in the spate of violence that has killed more than 6, 000 people in the last 10 years. This is as the Nigerian Army said its soldiers neutralised no fewer than 39 armed bandits in two different operations in Zamfara State last week.

In a another development, the Army said on Saturday the blockade of terrorists’ logistics supply routes in the North-east by troops paid off with the capture of 10 Boko Haram commanders in Gwoza Local Government Area of Borno State.
