149

The Zamfara State Police Command has refuted claims that bandits attacked witnesses of the presidential candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Atiku Abubakar travelling to Abuja to testify against President Muhammadu Buhari as the winner of the 2019 presidential election.

The command made the remarks in a statement signed by one SP Muhammad Shehu.

Atiku’s witnesses has related how they were attacked by bandits in Zamfara state which forced them to scamper into the bush for safety and stopped their journey to testify for the former Vice President.

Reacting, SP Shehu said: “It is pertinent to categorically state that as far the crime statistics of Zamfara state is concerned, there was no any attack by bandits either on villages or on any person or group of persons traveling on any highway in the state.

“Since the inception of the ongoing peace and dialogue initiative in the the state, attacks, kidnapping and other heinous crime in the state have been reduced drastically to about 98 percent, a situation that has restored peace and stability in the state.”

Shehu disclosed that over 100 kidnapped persons have been rescued and held in captivity for months through the initiatives of Commissioner of Police Usman Nagogo.

Appealed to media organisations to verify their information before publication, he added:

“Therefore, the command wishes to refute the entire story as misleading and a calculated attempt to undermine the current effort of both the state government and the police to bring lasting peace for social and economic development in the state.”
