The governor of Zamfara state, Bello Matawalle was summoned to the Presidential villa to brief the presidency on the state of security in his state.

Matawalle on Tuesday had a closed-door meeting with the Chief of Staff to the President, Prof. Ibrahim Gambari. He assured the presidency of his administration’s commitment to tackle rising insecurity in the state headlong.

The governor said every security apparatus in the state have been deployed to fight banditry and violence crimes in Zamfara.

Briefing newsmen after the meeting with Gambari, the governor said his government is prioritizing restoring normalcy to troubled areas of the state. He said, “I am here to see the Chief of Staff to the President because of the issue currently bedeviling Zamafara”.

According to him, “We discussed intensively about the security issue in Northern Nigeria, not just in Zamfara. “We met in the National Security Adviser’s office with northern governors and the Inspector-General of Police and other security agencies. “We discussed extensively on the issue of insecurity.

“I was invited here by the Chief of Staff to the President to come and brief him on the issue of insecurity in my state, which I have done, and we have understood where we are going.

“The Zamfara government and the security agencies are doing their best to make sure that we curtail this issue of insecurity.” According to the governor, government is using the carrot-and-stick approach in handling security issues in the state, adding that repentant bandits are profiled and re-integrated into the society.

“You know that in handling security issue, we have to adopt so many methods.

“So we are using both stick and carrot to achieve maximum result. “There are some repentant bandits who have already subscribed to the peace initiative; we are using them; but those who refused to key into the dialogue initiative, we are fighting them,” he said.

He expressed the hope that the intensified military operations which are ongoing in the state would be abate the menace,” he added (NAN).
