Dansadau blames Zamfara killings on govt, police negligence
Senator Saidu Dansadau has accused the Zamfara State government, the police and the Dansadau Emirate Council of negligence in an attack in Dansadau Emirate that killed over 100 people.
Dansadau who addressed the press yesterday in the premises of the ongoing National Conference in Abuja said that over 100 people were massacred with about 300 motorcycles burnt and about 150 heads of cattle used for animal traction rustled last Saturday.
Dansadau, who is a delegate at National Conference, said “It is the result of the negligent and a nonchalant disposition of the state government and the traditional institution in the area and the vicarious sometimes direct complicity of the police
“The police in Zamfara and particularly in the Dansadau division have at best treated this burgeoning genocide with scant attention.
While maintaining that his people do not want any relief material, he said compensation must be paid.
He urged President Goodluck Jonathan to immediately convene a security summit for Zamfara State where “ordinary people will have the opportunity to convey their grievances to the government and for well meaning indigenes of Zamfara to advice government on the best way out.”
