Zamfara State has been the epicentre of the banditry and Other forms of criminality that has gripped the Northwestern part of Nigeria for the better part of a decade now.
It was initially misdiagnosed as a fight over resources by Farmers and Herders who are both fighting the ravages of Climate change and was again thought to be a case of fight over precious metals including Gold neccesitating a flight ban by President Muhammadu Buhari in 2021.
These measures seem to have failed according to Security experts basically becuase the issue went beyond just the belief of a fight over resources but just outright criminality.
The State Government and Other Stakeholders have been battling to bring the Situation under control and these recent happenings is a setback for efforts.
