N24m levy imposed on Zamfara communities by bandits old -Police

The alleged N24 million levy imposed by bandits on nine communities of Bukkuyum Local Government Area of Zamfara State is an old issue, the state police command has said.

This was stated by the spokesperson for the state command, Mohammed Shehu, while reacting to the story published in some national dailies that the the levy was imposed recently.

Shehu, who spoke to newsmen, declared that the issue occurred over a month ago, adding that the police command had since taken action by deploying security personnel to those areas.

“This is an old issue and when the command got information that the bandits had written letters to the nine communities, we acted quickly and sent security personnel to those villages.

“It is never true that the said letters were sent to those villages after the bandit attacks on some communities in Anka and Bukkuyum local government areas.

“The letters were sent more than a month ago and the police command has since addressed that issue,” Shehu said.
