By Sadiq Aminu                                                       The Zamfara State Government is resolute in its commitment to combatting banditry and related crimes, emphasizing the need for a robust legal framework.

Represented by the Secretary to the State Government, Abubakar Nakwada, highlighted the devastating impact of banditry on the socio-economic development of the State.

He emphasized the severe repercussions on crucial sectors such as agriculture, education, and healthcare, causing immense hardship to the people of the state.

Governor Dauda Lawal’s administration has implemented various legal measures in response to the crisis and mapped out comprehensive policies in addressing the root causes of banditry.

According to him this is accompanied by two executive orders, including the closure of specific markets and a ban on illegal business activities within the state.

Similarly, In August 2023, the state enacted the Security Trust Fund Law, enabling the mobilization of resources from the public, private, and corporate sectors to enhance security initiatives.

The Governor added that, essential steps have been taken by the state government by establishment of the Community Protection Guard, which is a community-based security force being prepared to complement the existing conventional security agencies.

He assured the legal professionals of the State government’s commitment to partnering with the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) in the collective determination to fight insecurity in Zamfara State.
