Gov. Abdulazeez Yari of Zamfara on Tuesday in Abuja raised alarm over stock piling of arms by bandits operating in the state.

Yari
made this known while speaking with State House correspondents after he
had updated President Muhammadu Buhari on the socio-political and
security developments in the state.

Naija Politico learnt that
the governor, who ruled out dialogue with bandits, said: “I have told my
people that dialogue will no longer take place during my time because I
have done that three times, but it did not work.

“This is in the sense that we know their capacity.

“For
instance, during the first dialogue, they invited some of our team,
army, DSS, police, and my chief security officer as well as some
representatives of traditional rulers and we have seen what they have.

“They are in control of the kind of weapons that the security command in Zamfara does not have.

“In one armoury alone, they have more than 500 AK 47 rifles; we saw it.

“Our people were even given the chance to take pictures.

“But when we said we will dialogue and offer them amnesty if they surrendered their arms, they refused.

“I can tell you that till date we have not received up to 90 AK 47 rifles.

“So it is deceit. That is why I said no more dialogue during my tenure.

“During
dry season they try to get us to dialogue because they know the
security forces can get to them anywhere in the forest and they would
not have a place to hide.

“But when the rainy season comes and the forest becomes thicker they return to their normal practice.

“That is why I said there has to be a show of force before anything else.

“I
know that in any war, eventually you have to come to the table and
dialogue, but at this point and given the situation we are in right now,
dialogue is not needed.’’

The governor expressed the hope that
the Federal Government would soon address the security challenges facing
the state as it would soon take delivery of military hardware and
modern weapons to check the activities of the bandits in the area and
beyond.

“The Federal Government has already given procurement
contracts, inter-government transactions to the United States, China,
and other European countries.

In 2018, the Nigeria Governors Forum, approved one billion dollars to help the Federal Government equip the security agencies.

“We
believe the equipment will soon come into the country and it is our
hope that the equipment will be used so that this worrying situation
that we are in will become history,’’ he added.
