Bello Matawalle, Governor of Zamfara State, has insisted that he donated patrol vehicles to various security agencies in the state and not to bandits.
Governor Matawalle said this in a series of posts on Twitter while responding to an allegation made by Abubakar Maradun, a former chairman of Maradun Local Government Area of Zamfara State, concerning the distribution of patrol vehicles.
Maradun had alleged that the governor supplied Hilux vehicles to bandits which they used to attack innocent residents.
He said the bandits used two of the vehicles in an attack on Janbako community, which led to the death of 10 people.
But Governor Matawalle countered Maradun, saying 200 patrol vehicles were donated to the various security agencies in the state.
He added that the allegation was “a display of quackery and sheer mischief”.
