A yet to be unveiled soldier got arrested along with his girlfriend after been caught supplying Nigeria military uniform to bandits
The deputy chief of staff to governor Bello Muhammad Matawalle, Dr Bashir Muhammad Maru who disclosed this on Friday March 5 in a statement where he also falsify the report from media about the 40 people killed in the recent attack on Tungar Baushe community
Bashir said the arrest of the suspended soldier was made possible through an intelligent report received from the community
“While the the state Government awaits the action the Military will take on this matter and make an official statement, the development has further proved the position of Governor Bello Mohammed that unless the fight against banditry is cleansed of bad eggs and saboteurs, we may not record the desired success in the fight.
“Let me use this medium to salute the courage and patriotism of the individual who came forward with information that led to the arrest of these traitors. Our gratitude knows no bound,” he said.
“It is therefore unfortunate that some media organizations, without proper investigation and confirmation went ahead to publish fabricated accounts dished out to them by enemies of peace in the state.
“It is worthy to ask yourselves as media practitioners why those who gave you the false information of 40 people killed by the bandits (which in itself is blatantly false) refused to give you the information of the bandits killed by the sheer efforts of the resilient people of Ruwan Tofa, which in itself is the truth,” he lamented.
