Mayhem: Gombe Gov. Yahaya talks tough, vows to deal with perpetrators

73

Aftermath of bloody violence in the state capital on Friday, Gombe State Governor Muhammad Inuwa Yahaya has vowed to deal with “desperate politicians” who perpetrated the violence no matter how highly placed.

Yahaya also promised to ensure that peace reigned supreme in the state and protect the lives and property of citizens.

The governor’s warning came on the heels of violent attacks on the state capital on Friday by thugs allegedly sponsored by a former governor and senator representing Gombe Central, Sen. Danjuma Goje which left three persons dead.

“The Government of Gombe State condemned in strongest terms the breach of peace in the state capital caused by the visit of a former Governor of the state and Senator representing  Gombe Central,  Sen. Muhammad Danjuma Goje,” he said in a statement signed by the Commissioner for Information and Culture, Mr. Julius Ishaya Lepes and given to Persecondnews.com .

The governor accused Goje of mobilizing armed thugs from various council areas across the state who accompanied him to the state capital only to unleash terror and violence on innocent citizens for reasons best known to him.

The senator was also accused of sponsoring the thugs that caused mayhem in which two people were killed  during the last  Eid el-Kabir celebration.

“The same person sponsored some thugs that threw caution into the wind and went on rampage, leading to loss of 2 lives.  Also just last week at Deba in Yamaltu Deba LGA the same scenario played out at the instance of the Senator.

“It is sad that Goje has not left his old ways and is bent on bringing back his brainchild (Kalare) to unleash mayhem and bug the peaceful atmosphere of Gombe State.

“His Excellency,  Governor Muhammadu Inuwa Yahaya as the Chief Security officer of the State will not renege on its responsibilities and therefore will do everything necessary to protect the lives and property of the citizenry.  Government will make sure that perpetrators of the unfortunate act, no matter how highly placed are brought to book,”the statement said.

“Gombe state has been witnessing relative peace and harmony due largely to the determination and avowed commitment of Governor Inuwa Yahaya in that direction and therefore the government would not stand by and watch desperate  politicians unleash terror and violence on innocent citizens to the extent of getting people killed.

“While sympathizing with families of the victims, Government commends the security agencies for their timely intervention in bringing the ugly situation under control,” it added.
