ABUJA – The All Progressives Congress (APC) has urged security agencies to investigate an intelligence report linking a North-West governor to banditry, abductions and other violent crimes in the zone.
Mr Yekini Nabena, APC Acting Deputy National Publicity Secretary gave the charge in a statement on Thursday in Abuja.
Nabena who did not name the governor, said that the increased spate of banditry in the area was political motivated.
He added that the development was not unconnected with the alleged sponsorship of banditry and other violent crimes by the said governor.
“I won’t give details because of the sensitive and security nature of the issue.
He said that the plot was to frustrate the quick and safe release of the abducted students of Government Science Secondary School Kankara in Katsina State.
The North West geo-political zone is made up of seven states. They are Jigawa, Kaduna, Kano, Sokoto, Zamfara, Katsina and Kebbi.
