Kolo Yusuf, the Zamfara State Commissioner of Police, has promised to put a stop to the insurgency in the region in three months.

Kolo made this commitment during a meeting on Thursday with a range of stakeholders, including journalists, civil society organizations, religious leaders, and organized labor unions, .

Alongside his statement, the Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) and the Trade Union Congress (TUC) called for a postponement of their planned nationwide protest, which was set for February 27 and 28.

The CP said that all issues relating to the insurgency will be resolved within the next three months and blamed the planned demonstration on President Bola Tinubu’s administration’s elimination of fuel subsidies.

“This government did not initiate the removal of fuel subsidies, which is the main issue involved in this,” Yusuf said.

He emphasized the need for tolerance and backing for the government as it works to resolve the insurgent problem.

The state’s chief of police asserts that the federal and state administrations have taken action against the insurgency and are confident that things will be resolved in the allotted time.

Kolo warned the parties involved of the potential consequences of their conduct, urging them to reevaluate their position on the demonstration.

“The state will come to its knees by the time all of you here don’t work.” There are bandits there, and they won’t let anyone farm.

“I no longer get any sleep. To remedy the issue, I keep contacting DPOs and area commanders,” he said.

In response, Saidu Mudi, the Chairman of the TUC in Zamfara State, said that the organisation was unable to call off the demonstration because they had not received instructions to do so from their national headquarters.

“You were there, you saw the session,” he continued.

In his capacity as the CP, he expressed his desire for the labour unions to moderate their strike actions.

However, since the national leadership has not given us any orders, we are unable to postpone our planned strike. Unless an agreement is made, we are moving forward with it.

A two-day statewide demonstration was staged by organised labour in response to the high cost of living, inflation, unpredictability, and suffering experienced by the population.

In an unexpected turn of events, the TUC withdrew from the scheduled demonstration, claiming that neither union decided to protest on the designated dates.
