Zamfara State Governor, Bello Matawalle, has revealed why banditry will not end soon in the state.
The governor attributed the continued attacks by bandits on innocent residents of various communities in the state to the activities of some individuals.
He made the remarks on Monday while briefing State House correspondents after meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari in Abuja.
The governor equally blamed those he described as political bandits as responsible for fake reports on the number of affected persons in the recent attacks on some communities.
He debunked the claims that up to 200 persons were killed in Bukuyyum and Anka Local Government Areas of Zamfara.
Governor Matawalle gave an assurance that in spite of the efforts of these individuals, residents would begin to witness significant improvement in the security situation.
According to him, the President is wading in through some strategies that will be manifest in the next 48 hours to provide succor to the people.
