Arrest rumour mongers using media to cause havoc in Zamfara


From Maiharaji Altine Salah 

Security agents in Zamfara state have been urged to swing into action and arrest rumour mongers using the social media platforms in order to cause havoc and confusion in the state.

The demand was contained in a statement by the Coordinator, Jaji Vanguard, Honourable Nasiru Garba and made available to Analyzer news on Friday.  

In the statement,  Honourable Garba said, the arrest and prosecution of such people would help in no small measure in bringing peace to the already battered state of Zamfara and its people before the situation goes out of control.

Honourable Garba explained that some mischief makers hide from somewhere and write nasty or inciting reports on Zamfara which is battling to free itself from the fangs of armed bandits and other very dangerous criminals who have made it their hub.

He was specifically urging the security agents to arrest one faceless Ahmed Abubakar Birane who claimed to be the chairman of an unknown body in the state that goes by the title, “Zamfara North Progressive Movement”.

According to Hon Garba, the faceless Ahmed Abubakar Birane held a purported press briefing and delved into a politically motivated case involving acts of banditry and kidnapping.

At the press briefing, he mentioned the name of a member of Federal House of Representativeness representing Kaura Namoda/Birnin Magaji, Hon. Sani Jaji just to fulfill the whims of his sponsors.

During the fabricated press briefing, the faceless Birane shamelessly mentioned that Hon. Jaji had put pressure on the police to release Hon. Ibrahim who they invited to give his own account over a security issue. 

“The half-witted brainless writer forgot that he had mentioned that the man was released on bail”. Lamented Hon Garba.

Hon Garba said, ‘The purported press briefing has no address, not even the state where it held, no date nor publishing houses that were represented which further exposed the fact of the originator’s motifs”.

This sensitive issue calls for an urgent need for security agencies to swing into action and arrest such rumour mongers using the social media to further cause havoc to the already battered state of Zamfara and its people before they escalate”.

We are strongly demanding that he should provide unquestionably convincing evidence where and how Jaji put pressure for the release of Hon. Ibrahim”

“While we have urged the security to fish out these bad elements from wherever they may be operating, we are also preparing to seek redress in a competent court of law against them to serve as deterrent”. Concluded Hon Garba.
