Zamfara State Government, through the Deputy Chief of Staff, Government House Gusau, Dr. Bashir Muhammad Maru, has informed the public that an Army officer and his girlfriend were apprehended and detained for purportedly assisting in supplying Military uniforms and ammunition to the notorious bandits in the Zamfara state.
According to Maru, “another issue of topical importance is the recent arrest by the Military of an Army officer and his girlfriend who are engaged in assisting bandits with Military uniforms and ammunition in active connivance with other saboteurs. This arrest was only made possible through community-driven intelligence.”
He also declared, “While the state government awaits the action the military will take on this matter and make an official statement, the development has further proved the position of Governor Bello Mohammed that until bad eggs and saboteurs among those fighting banditry are cleared, we may not record the desired success in the fight. Let me use this medium to salute the courage and patriotism of the individuals who came forward with information that led to the arrest of these traitors.”
