Matawalle calls for state of emergency in northern region over insecurity

Worried by raging insecurity in northern Nigeria, Zamfara State Governor Bello Matawalle has called for a state of emergency in the region.

The governor made the call when he spoke with an Assistant Inspector General of Police, Ali Janga, at the Government House in Gusau, the Zamfara State capital, on Wednesday.

Insecurity in northern Nigeria has continued to grow worse in recent times. In 2015, when President Muhammadu Buhari, a northerner, was first elected as the country’s president, the region only had Boko Haram attacks in the North-East to worry about.

Currently, no part of the North knows peace. While activities of bandits have turned North-West into a shadow of itself, killer herdsmen are making life miserable for the people of North-Central.
