The Governor of Zamfara State, Bollo Matawalle gives reason why citizens should acquire guns, he said, the state government relied on an extant legislation to direct residents.

The Chief press secretary to the governor, Jamilu Magaji, in a statement on Tuesday said, “to encourage the communities suffering almost daily from the inhuman aggressions from the bandits to acquire firearms to defend their communities.

Self-defence is a natural instinct and has always been part of human survival strategy, As those entrusted with the safety of lives and property of the people, we will do everything possible to uphold this responsibility within the ambit of the law.

“We are also aware that the security forces are doing their best to combat this formidable challenge, Their efforts are, however, hampered by the lack of adequate modern warfare equipment and the dearth of personnel.

“Our decision to mobilise people to secure their communities is, therefore, for the people to complement the efforts of the conventional security forces in dealing with banditry and fishing out informants

He further said, “The acquisition and usage of firearms by the public, who desire to do so, would be governed by the Nigeria Firearms Act.”

WAKADAILY gathered that Zamfara government approved the use of guns two days ago to protect citizens from bandits constant attack. He said “Government has henceforth, directed individuals to prepare and obtain guns to defend themselves against the bandits, as government has directed the state Commissioner of Police to issue licences to all those who qualify and are wishing to obtain such guns to defend themselves.”
