APC to Gov. Lawal: Employ more strategies to end banditry

The Zamfara chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has called on the state government under Gov. Dauda Lawal to employ more strategies towards ending banditry and other criminal activities in the state.

This is contained in a statement issued in Gusau on Saturday by the state APC Publicity Secretary, Malam Yusuf Idris.

“The state APC chapter condemned recent attacks on the residence of State Hajj Commission’s Chairman, Alhaji Musa Mallaha in the state capital by bandits.

“The State APC Chairman, Alhaji Tukur  Danfulani, on behalf of the party’s State Working Committee, executives and members in the state wishes to condole Mallaha and his family over the recent attack on his residence which led to the death of his son, Abdulmunafi.

“May Allah grant the deceased a home in Aljannatul Firdausi,” Idris said.

According to him, the party is equally touched and appalled by the abduction of other residents in the area during the attack who are currently in the bandits’ captivity.

Idris said, “We pray to Allah to save them and ensure their rescue very soon.

“We once again wish to implore the state government to employ more strategies to bring to an end the activities of bandits and other criminals in our state.

“We also pray for the continued unity, stability, and development of Zamfara and Nigeria in general..”

According to him, the party also wishes to extend its heartfelt condolences to the family of late Alhaji Yusuf Danhausa, an elder statesman who passed away recently in Gusau.

“Danhausa, who died at the stunning age of 126 years, lived a highly impactful life worthy of emulation.

“May his gentle soul continue to rest in Aljannatul Firdausi and may Allah accord the family the fortitude to bear this great loss,” Idris said (NAN
