The Zamfara PDP Image maker noted that lack of timely intervention by the relevant Security Agencies to forestall this gruesome act that lasted for almost three hours, coupled with the Security Agencies’ inability to arrest and bring the suspects to book, has compelled us to conclude that the arsonists and their sponsors are State actors.

The people of Zamfara State according to the main opposition party are aware of the heavy presence of the operatives of various Security Agencies in Gusau town, monitoring the prevailing security situation, yet none of the perpetrators could be arrested.
