The Senate Deputy Minority Whip, Senator Sahabi Yau’ Alhaji has commended the Zamfara State Police Command for securing the release of no fewer than 40 people being held in various hideouts by the Volunteer Vigilante groups and bandits in the state.

He urged the operatives to intensify their efforts to ensure that every one still in captivity regains his or her freedom.

Sen. Yau also commended the state government over its commitment and relentlessness in ensuring that peace returns to Zamfara by deploying measures that would once more infuse confidence in the psyche of the inhabitants of the state and re-assure them that their plights and aspirations will be addressed.

In a statement issued in Abuja yesterday, Senator Yau’ expressed concerns over the senseless attacks on the state by bandits and the alarming rate of bloodbath as well as wanton destruction of economic activities in the state and called on the security operatives to step up their game with the view to return Zamfara State to its old peaceful days.

Describing the killings in the state as unacceptable, the lawmaker called on all stakeholders to do everything within their reach to end the killings in Zamfara, stressing that the search for an enduring peace in the state is a task for all patriots to accomplish.

He added that as long as there is no peace in Zamfara, the state would steadily remain on the path of retrogression and vulnerability .

Yau maintained that as a lawmaker he would do everything within his powers to ensure that Zamfara State takes its rightful position through legislations and other acceptable means of interventions.

The lawmaker extended his heartfelt sympathy and empathy to those who have lost loved ones since the crisis began as well as families of those whose whereabouts are yet unknown.
