From Gbade Ogunwale, Abuja
A socio-political interest group, the Patriots for the Advancement of Peace and Social Development (PAPS) has warned politicians in Zamfara State against actions that could trigger a renewed wave of violence in the state.
In a statement yesterday, group leader, Sani Shinkafi, raised the alarm that the relative peace enjoyed by the state in the last few months was being threatened by the actions of some political actors.
Shinkafi stated that the actions of leaders of factions of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in recent times, was inimical to the fragile peace in the state.
“We write to call the attention of Nigerians and the world to a disaster waiting to occur in Zamafara State, which has hitherto been the hotbed of banditry, kidnapping and cattle-rustling until the inauguration of the present administration of the Executive Governor of Zamfara State, Bello Matawalle.
