Shinkafi Condemns Invasion Of FMR Zamfara Governor Residence By Police Officials

A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Dr Sani Shinkafi condemns in strong terms the invasion of former Governor Bello Mohammed Matallewe’s residences in Gusau and Maradun his home town in Zamfara State.

In his statement, Dr Shinkafi said It is outrageous, despicable, barbaric and impunity taken too far by the Police and Department of State Security Services (DSS) operatives on June 9, 2023.

It is inconceivable that a combined team of the Police and DSS would invade the homes of the immediate past governor of Zamfara State few days after he handed over power peacefully to Governor Dauda Lawal of the Peoples Democratic Party. Nigeria is governed by a rule of law, not might. All lovers of democracy should condemn this dastardly action of the nation’s  law enforcement agents who took laws into their hands to invade Matallewe’s homes in Gusau and Maradun in Zamfara State and condoned off roads leading to the houses in flagrant violation of his fundamental human rights as enshrined in the 1999 constitution as amended. It is unfair, unjust and unacceptable.

I call on the Inspector General of Police and Director General of DSS to order their personnel to vacate the occupied premises immediately. If security agents think he has a case to answer they should follow due process of the law. Nigeria is not a banana republic. I strongly condemn this politically motivated action of the Police and DSS to embarrass, harass and intimidate the former governor of the state. This show of shame must stop to safe our hard earned democracy.
