The Zamfara state governor, Senator Bello Mohammed, has charged royal fathers in the state to provide intelligence that would end insecurity bedeviling the northern region.
A statement issued by the governor’s Director-General Media, Public Enlightenment and Communication, Yusuf Idris Gusau on Wednesday, quoted him as speaking while receiving the people of Shinkafi, Zurmi, Kaura Namoda, Birnin Magaji and Tsafe Emirates Councils who paid him Sallah homage at his Gusau residence.
The governor directed them to share intelligence with security agencies so that appropriate measures can be taken accordingly.
He described sharing genuine intelligence as the major bedrock of ending security challenges facing the region and the country at large.
The governor reiterated his administration’s determination to protect the lives and property of all citizens at all levels in the state.
Mohammed also appreciated the support and the cooperation his government was getting from the royal fathers especially the government peace process, which according to him, had yielded positive results.
The peace process, he stated had led to the opening of all the roads and market places that were not accessible or patronised before the coming of his administration.
The governor also commended the security agencies in the state for their pro-activeness and making the state more secured than before.
