In addition to the night guard arrested, a soldier and his girl riend have been busted I connection with the banditry rocking Zamfara in the northwestern part of Nigeria.
The state government announced this on Friday.
Briefing newsmen in Government House Gusau, Deputy Chief of Staff Dr. Bashir Muhammad Maru said the officer and his girlfriend were arrested by his colleagues.
“This arrest was only made possible through community-driven intelligence.”
Maru declared that the state government was awaiting the military’s action regarding the arrest.
He also echoed the position of Gov Bello Matawalle—that there were bad eggs among the security personnel and that until the system is cleared of these ones, it would be difficult to defeat bandits.
“Until bad eggs and saboteurs among those fighting banditry are cleared, we may not record the desired success in the fight,” he said.
Maru saluted the patriotism of the citizens that reported the army officer.
“Finally, Zamfara State government wishes to call on all media organizations to properly investigate and authenticate their facts before they rush to the press.”
