Video: Zamfara Govt official assaults man for criticising Governor Matawalle
The Managing Director of Zamfara State Transport Authority (ZAROTA), Aliyu Alhazzai Shinkafi has physically attacked a driver, Abdulrasheed Buhari Yandi for criticising the Bello Matawalle-led government in the state.
According to SaharaReporters, Yandi had in a Facebook post on May 12 expressed disappointment over what he called lack of significant infrastructural projects in the state.
The driver also accused Matawalle of paying much attention to maintaining a glamorous appearance, rather than governance.
“PDP (Peoples Democratic Party) is ours and our desire is its progress, but I am disappointed with Matawalle. Honestly I am so disappointed when I came to Zamfara; there is nothing developmental that I saw in Gusau and the entire Zamfara,” Yandi wrote.
“Matawalle promised to build Gusau Hotel in three months but there is nothing yet; he said he will build Ruga in one year, it is yet to materialise. Cargo airport is yet to take off. There is nothing significant in terms of security.”
Angry with the Facebook post, Shinkafi went in search of the young man.
The ZAROTA boss was seen in a video beating Yandi and boasting to harm anyone who doesn’t support the governor of the state.
“Who sent you to abuse my governor? I can kill you,” he was heard saying.
