Zamfara State Governor Bello Muhammad Mutawalle has been given 2 weeks Ultimatum to end insurgence, killings, kidnapping and abduction of innocent people by terrorists in the state.

He’s also expected to come out and explain the reasons for continued negotiation with Bandits even when the negotiation is not working in the state.
The ultimatum was handed by group under the guise of Concerned All Progressive Congress (APC)Youth of Nigeria, during a press briefing held in kaduna on Tuesday.

The national coordinator of the APC group Dr. Suleiman Shuaibu Shinkafi who briefed journalists warned that the Governor would be dragged to ECOWAS court after two weeks if he failed to comply with their directive.
” The reason for this ultimatum for the governor is because the issue of security is too much in Zamfara state. The killings, Kidnappings and Abductions are stil so much in the dtate. Our people are suffering. We don’t know why the governor insisted in negotiating with Zamfara state even when the approach is not working. Even Americans, the supper powers don’t negotiate with terrorists and so why the governor should continue to negotiate”, he said.
” These are some of the issues we discussed and that of his defection and a resolution was reached. The state has only 14 LGs and therefore we see no reason why he’s insisting in negotiation. Even when the process is continue, according to them, people are being killed on daily basis and no stop.
“Therefore if he did not come out to tell he’s reasons for continue with the negotiation in two-week we’ll drag him to ECOWAS coourt to see redress”, he said.
