Zamfara State Governor, Dauda Lawal Dare, has accused immediate past Governor, Bello Matawalle, of stealing 17 government vehicles as well as looting property including Television sets and cookers from the government house in his last days in office.

Dare who made the allegations during a phone in programme on the state owned Vision FM in Gusau on Thursday, said his predecessor also left behind an empty treasury and huge debt burden for the incoming government.

“Former Governor Bello Matawalle had gone away with 17 vehicles from his office and those in the deputy governor’s office claiming that the vehicles are his personal belongings. In fact, not even office equipment were spared,” Dare said while vowing to make sure the items are recovered.
