According to statement credited to the Director General of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), Brigadier General Nnamdi Okore-Affia, Zamfara State has been described as the most peaceful state in the country. The NYSC DG made this declaration while at the same time he was asking corps members posted to the state to be security conscious.

Okore-Affia made this known yesterday at the NYSC orientation camp in Tsafe, Zamfara State, while addressing 2012 Batch ‘B‘corps members posted to the state in continuation of his visits to camps in the country. And, according to him, Zamfara had track record of being a peaceful state since its creation in 1996.

In his words, “I want to urge you to respect your host community culture, religion, and dress decently. Zamfara is the most peaceful state in the country and I want to call on the media to tell Nigerians exactly what Zamfara is all about particularly as regards security. It is very peaceful. Be sharp, wise and respect the traditional rulers of your host communities,” said Okare-Affia.

However, in an ironic twist of events, the same Zamfara State was recently in the news for being the state in which police officers – those who are supposed to be protecting the citizens – were arrested for releasing their ammunitions to robbers and other types of vagabonds.
