Governor Bello Matawalle of Zamfara State has reacted to the National Security Council’s decision to declare Zamfara State a no-fly zone.

The National Security Adviser, Major-General Babagana Monguno (rtd), disclosed this at the end of National Security Council meeting on Tuesday.

Monguno also announced that the Federal Government had banned mining activities in the state, saying that the actions were taken as a result of the high level of insecurity in the state.

However, reacting to the development when Chairman of the Nigerian Governors’ Forum (NGF),  Kayode Fayemi visited him on Tuesday, Matawalle said he was not sure the Federal Government understood the situation.

“It seems the security council doesn’t understand where the nature of the security problems in Zamfara state but if they decided to take such action let them go ahead.”

“I’m not afraid of anybody and the problem of insecurity in the state predated my administration.”

“Nigerians are waiting to see the outcome of the security council resolution to see if these bandits would be crushed. If the Federal Government fails to crush them after this resolution, then Nigerians will understand that they only sat and serve themselves tea, nothing more,” he said.

He added that he had started investigating those behind the abduction of students of Government Girls Secondary School, Jengebe, Zamfara.

In his part, Fayemi said the federal and state authorities must work hard to put an end to the spate of kidnapping in the country.
