Nigeria: Zamfara Takes Steps to Deal With Insecurity - Yari

Gov. Abdulazeez Yari of Zamfara said in Dutse on Friday that his government had put necessary measures in place to address insecurity in the state.

Yari made the statement in an interview with the newsmen after he paid a condolence visit to Gov. Sule Lamido over the death of his uncle.

He said the state government was working with the security agencies and other relevant stakeholders to tackle insecurity.

"The only security challenge we have in Zamfara is the farmers' and pastoralists' conflict.

"My government has designed several measures to address the problem head on," he said.

The governor said the problem of insecurity was a global challenge and restated his government's determination to ensure peace and stability in the state.
