Meanwhile the President on Monday December 24, in a telephone call to Alhaji Garba Mohammed Tambari, the Emir of Maradun in Zamfara State, expressed sorrow over the loss of lives following attacks on communities in Zamfara State by bandits and cattle rustlers.

Buhari assuring that his government will do everything in its powers to bring to an end the horrendous attacks.

I have been reliably informed that the FG is plotting to hide under the killings in Zamfara State by armed bandits to impose emergency rule on the state.

This is their response to the insistence of INEC not to allow APC field candidates for the 2019 general election in the state.
