The leader of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) in Zamfara State, Dr.Sani Abdullah Shinkafi, has accused APC leaders in the State of offering 56 million naira to bandits to refuse the release of Jangebe abducted girls.
According to him, their aim was to sabotage the peace effort of Governor Bello Mohammed Matawalle of Zamfara State. Shinkafi, the 2019 governorship candidate of APGA in Zamfara State, made the allegation during a press briefing as quoted below.
“I, therefore, challenge politicians from both the ruling and opposition parties to subject their telephone numbers to security checks since I am confident that the story that will come out of that process would be shocking,” he said.
According to him, the security checks on the personal telephones of the selected politicians should be from 25th of February to the time when the girls were released.
Shinkafi furthered by saying that some APC members in Zamfara State were desperate to ensure that Matawalle failed in his commitment to transform the state, pointing out that security operatives needed to be active in curtailing the insecurity situation affecting the country.
Urging the youth not to allow themselves to be used as stooges for burning down Nigeria by some desperate and selfish politicians, he advise them to focus more on building the nation. Shinkafi also called on the government to come up with an initiative that will help in empowering the youth by creating job opportunities for them.
