‘Mining activities not benefiting Zamfara,’ Gov. Yari raises posers on real reasons for mass killings in the State

ZAMAFARA: Teacher mercilessly flogs student to death

The governor of Zamfara State Abdul’aziz Yari has alleged that miners in the state are behind the recent mass killings witnessed within his domain.

Gov Yari suggested that much on Sunday in Talata-Mafara after a meeting with security chiefs in the state, where he commended the Federal Government for banning mining activities to help in tackling insecurity in the state.

After the meeting, governor Yari said; “Zamfara as host of these miners have not been benefiting from them and mining activities must be suspected because most of them are doing activities close to bandits’ camps and nothing is affecting them.

“Therefore miners must be suspected because of these reasons. So we welcome this decision and we are going to support it,’’ he said.

“We have started seeing positive results due to measures put in place and we hope these will be sustained,’’ the governor added.
