The All Progressives Congress(APC) has tasked the Inspector-General of Police (IG) to investigate the vandalisation of former Gov. Bello Matawalle of Zamfara’s residence by individuals masquerading as security operatives.
Alhaji Musa Mada, the Northwest APC Publicity Secretary, said this at a news conference in Kaduna on Saturday.
Mada said that the vandalisation was in violation of section 34, 35, 37, 41 and 42 of the Constitution of the federal republic of Nigeria 1999 as amended.
“Our enquiry at both the Gusau and Maradu residences of Bello Matawalle confirmed that there was no warrant or anything for that matter presented to the people when the act was carried out by the invaders.
“Furthermore, residences of other government officials that worked with Matawalle during his four year administration were also invaded and some of their personal vehicles carted away by the same group.
“If investigation is not taken, hoodlums may wear uniforms and attack perceived enemies in the name of such operations.
“As a party, we will not tolerate that and we will watch closely how the authorities concerned will handle the situation so that we will know whether the police and the DSS are working for the PDP or Nigeria,” he said.
Muda urged party supporters and Matawalle’s loyalists to remain calm and not take laws into their hands, pending investigation by police authorities.
