Governor of Sokoto State, Aminu Tambuwal has blamed influx of bandits in the State on the military operation in Zamfara.

The former speaker of the House of Representatives made this known over the weekend while receiving a Presidential delegation, comprising Babagana Monguno, National Security Adviser, Yusuf Bichi, Director-General of the Department of State Services (DSS), Usman Alkali Baba, Inspector-General of Police, and Samuel Adebayo, Chief of Defense Intelligence.

According to the governor: “Operation Hadarin Daji, the precursor of the escalation of tension and crisis in Sokoto State was carried out without any blocking force around the neighbouring states, particularly Sokoto state.

“Also, the timing of the operation, whereby, unfortunately, our security agents do not have enough equipment to move and curtail and contain those that would pander towards Sokoto state didn’t help the timing as well. So, the timing and the way the operation was carried out left Sokoto very vulnerable.

“It does appear as if those bandits pursued from Zamfara state have relocated to Sokoto State. This is a very serious call for concern.”
