Photos of governors posing with associate of Bandit leader surface


Some throwback pictures showing two governors and Musa Kamarawa, an associate of notorious bandits’ kingpin, Bello Turji, posing together have stirred suspicion.

SaharaReporters shared the photographs of the suspect with governors of Zamfara and Sokoto states’, Bello Matawalle and Aminu Tambuwal, and the deputy governor of Sokoto, Mannir Dan Iyya.

Zamfara and Sokoto are two of the North-west states under attacks by bandits in which hundreds of people have been killed and thousands displaced.

It was reported last week that Kamarawa, nephew to former Governor Attahiru Bafarawa, was arrested by the police and detained in Abuja over links to bandits and their leaders.

Kamarawa was arrested in September 2021 but the video of his questioning by the police only appeared online a few weeks ago.

Under interrogation, Kamarawa said he had known Turji for long.

“Turji is my bosom friend, we are always in touch and we seek each other’s advice on our operations most of the time,” the suspect said.
