ZAMFARA, Nigeria – The State Governor, Bello Mohammed Matawalle, has insisted that the disbanded FSARS was vital to the maintenance of peace in the state.
In a statement made available by his Special Adviser Public Enlightenment, Media and Communications, Zailani Bappa, Matawalle reiterated the commitment of his administration to do the right thing at all times and support who is doing the right things.
“We have recorded tremendous development in the area of peace building in Zamfara with the commitment and professional contribution and support of the FSARS of the Nigeria Police.
“This unit has helped a lot in bringing down the level of banditry and hooliganism in our communities in the state, and we describe the sudden scrapping of the unit throwing away the baby along with the dirty water.
“I will personally seek audience with Mr President on this issue.
“We need the FSARS or its equivalent in Zamfara State because we have seen their positive impacts in spite their alleged excesses,” Matawalle said.
