Zamfara State Governor, Bello Mohammed (Matawallen Maradun) has advised those who have been arrested by security operatives for various offences to face their travails squarely and stop blaming him for their predicament.
He expressed this in a statement signed by his Special Adviser, Zailani Bappa, made available on December 10.
“Anyone who finds himself in collusion course with the law should courageously face his travails with the law of the land and desist from blame game on the office of the Governor”, Matawalle warned.
“The Police and, indeed, all other Security operatives are not my property, nor are they working for my personal interest but for the well being of Zamfara State and Nigeria as a whole “, the Governor further observed.
It has been a while now that after the attainment of peace in the state, some enemies of the state and Nigeria have indulged themselves in making inflammatory statements and sometimes actions aimed at reversing the hands of the clock.
“Those arrested and taken to court willingly broke the law and are apprehended by the law, not by Governor Matawalle. They should be courageous enough to own up their mischief and defend themselves before the law” the Governor advised.
The statement titked, “MATAWALLE WARNS MISCHIEF MAKERS” said that some mischievous persons in the state are alluding the arrest of offenders to his person, or his office, or both.
“Hence, His Excellency wishes to draw the attention of all and sundry that he has no hands in the arrest of any offender within and outside the state,” it stated.
