Recall that the National Assembly while passing the 2019 budget, made a provision of N10bn for the creation of an intervention fund to be called the Presidential Initiative on Zamfara State to cater for the humanitarian disaster in state.Senator Marafa who revealed that the bandits have killed 11,000 men and orphaned 44,000 in Zamfara, said his colleagues’ support for the initiative showed that with unity of purpose and direction, the country could overcome its challenges.
He said the “unfortunate and dark eight years of banditry from 2011 to date in Zamfara has conservatively led to the killing of over 11,000 male adults, leaving behind an estimated average of 22,000 widows – at two wives per person – and an estimated 44,000 orphans at an average of four children per deceased.”
