The governor of the state, Bello Matawalle, represented by his deputy chief of staff, Bashir Maru, disclosed this during a press conference on Friday.

Muru, who didn’t provide more details of the alleged incident, said the state government was waiting for the military authorities to release an official statement on the matter.

The governor said the soldier was arrested by the military through community-driven intelligence. He also applauded those who came forward with information that led to the arrest of the traitors.

“The military recently arrested an army officer and his girlfriend who were engaged in assisting bandits with military uniforms and ammunition in active connivance with other saboteurs. This arrest was only made possible through community-driven intelligence.

“While the state government awaits the action the military will take on this matter and make an official statement, the development has further proved the position of Governor Bello Mohammed that unless the fight against banditry is cleansed of bad eggs and saboteurs, we may not record the desired success in the fight.

“Let me use this medium to salute the courage and patriotism of the individual who came forward with information that led to the arrest of these traitors. Our gratitude knows no bounds,” the official said.

KanyiDaily had reported how bandits recently abducted 317 female students of Government Girls Secondary School, Jangebe in Zamfara State.
