Hilux and Dollars to Bandits: Gov. Matawalle denies allegation

Governor Bello Matawalle of Zamfara State has denied the allegation that the State government gave out Hilux vehicles and millions of dollars to repentant bandits.

In a statement, Dr. Matawalle said;

“This is a false and malicious report by a dead newspaper clinging on spreading fake news to stay relevant. Sahara reporters should’ve professionally sought out our government to verify this information before rushing to press. This is against the ethics of journalism.”

On clarifying the issue surrounding the giving out of the vehicles, the governor said;

“The said vehicles, 200 of them were donated to security agencies in the state to boost their morale in tackling insurgency. This is a display of quackery and sheer mischief targeted at disabusing the minds of law abiding and patriotic citizens of the state.”
