Zamfara: Residents protest troops’ withdrawal from Bini village

Villagers from Bini village in Maru Local Government Area of Zamfara State marched to the Government House in Gusau to protest against the removal of military troops from their village.

The reason for withdrawing the troops was not made known to them, leaving their community without security. Men, women, and children from the community carried their foodstuff, mats, and other belongings to express their dismay at the Government House.

They lamented that some of the community members had been shot by the bandits, leaving them with various injuries. They insisted that the government should return the troops and deploy an additional contingent to secure the community and guarantee their safety.

State Commissioner for Education, Science, and Technology, Wadatau Madawaki, and his counterpart in the Ministry of Budget and Economic Planning, Abdul Malik Gajam, received the peaceful protesters.

They assured the state government is doing its best to ensure the security and safety of the residents in line with their campaign promises. They promised to redeploy troops to protect the Bini community and other troubled communities in the state.

Madawaki also reiterated the Dauda Lawal administration’s stance of not negotiating with the bandits but wanting security forces to go all-out to root them out of the state.
