The Zamfara Government has directed an immediate return of Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) to their various villages.

Gov. Abdulaziz Yari gave the directive while addressing newsmen shortly after the state’s security meeting on Monday.

The governor said the state had enough deployment in terms of security personnel that would remain with communities to ensure peace.

Yari said the state had received the deployment of 1,000 troops which were adequate to fight the crimes.

He said the security chief in the state assured him of the rediness to tackle the insecurity in the state.

He directed the council chairmen to mobilise all communities at the camps in Zurmi, Shikafi, Anka and Maradun back to their villages and towns.

The governor stressed that peace had started returning in the villages.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that recently, the local governments have recorded thousands of IDPs resulting from bandits’ attacks.
