Governor Abdul’aziz Yari of Zamfara State yesterday said he had ‘resigned’ his responsibility as Chief Security Officer of the state as he allegedly had no control over the security machinery in the state.

Speaking to newsmen in Talata-Mafara on Friday, Yari said that his decision was predicated on the seeming helplessness of the state government and the people over recurring killings in the state.

He regretted the prevailing situation where as the Chief Security Officer of the state, he could not take decisions on strategies for protecting the state and its people, and had them implemented.

“We have been facing serious security challenges over the years, but in spite of being governor and Chief Security Officer of the state, I cannot direct security officers on what to do or sanction them when they err.
