The  former Lagos State governor, Bola Tinubu, on Thursday, announced a donation of N50million to Zamfara communities recently attacked by bandits.

The National leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) made the donation shortly after commiserating with Governor Bello Matawalle in Gusau, Zamfara.

It will be recalled that about 200 people were reported killed last week when bandits invaded some villages in Bukkuyum and Anka Local Government Areas of the state.

Tinubu said, “I could offer prayers for the people from anywhere, but coming in person is important. The enemies of knowledge, Boko Haram and other criminal elements will be defeated through commitment in humanity. We pray for the entire country to be stable, and if the enemies refuse to stop the carnage, we shall eliminate them.

“We believe in President Muhammadu Buhari’s ability to restore law and order and bring back our country to stability and tracks of development.”

Tinubu went there with Kashim Shettima, former Borno governor, the former chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Nuhu Ribadu and former APC National Vice Chairman, South-West, Pius Akinyelure.

It will be recalled that President Muhammadu Buhari had also sent his condolences and that of his government to the people of Zamfara State, describing it as the “extremely unfortunate” mass killings of innocent people by re bandits.?
