Governor Aminu Waziri Tambuwal of Sokoto state on Wednesday warned marauders and their collaborators to stay clear off the state or face the full wrath of the law.

Tambuwal, who cut short his official trip midnight Tuesday returned back to Sokoto to address the reported influx of suspected bandits and their informants into Sabon Garin Liman in Wurno local government area of the state.

He said his administration, with the assistance of security agencies and the Federal Government, would not allow criminals to roll back the gains achieved with their nefarious activities.

“The state government is not unaware of the happenings in this village, where bandits, both within and outside the country are taking refuge.

“I was out of the state. I left Sokoto yesterday. I had to come back by 1 am last night because of the information I received which is very worrisome and of concern, which has to do with the happenings around here and Gundumi forest (in Zamfara state).

“We know that there are informants in this village and they collaborate with bandits. We are going to flush them out and make sure that the law takes its course on them,” Tambuwal reaffirmed.

The Governor appealed to law-abiding people in the community to collaborate with the village head, community leaders, and security agencies in the state; “particularly those deployed around this area so that together we could nip this in the bud and reestablished peace in this village and in the other areas of the state.

He however commiserated with the people of the community on what has been happening around here, especially the recent attacks.”

Referring to what happened in Kebbi state where bandits killed over 60 vigilante men on Sunday evening, the Governor also extended condolences to the people and government of the state, while pointing out that “we don’t want such happenings.

“We must work together to ensure the progress being recorded so far is not retarded.

“We pray that God Almighty shall continue to forgive the souls of those who lost their lives; and grant complete healings to those who sustained injuries and wounds.”
