A lawmaker representing Zurmi East Constituency in the Zamfara State House of Assembly, Salihu Zurmi, has complained over persistent attacks, intimidation as well as a threat to his life because he refused to defect to All Progressives Congress (APC)
He is the only state lawmaker that refused to follow Governor Bello Mattawale to the APC, said he has been receiving threats to his life from different areas.
He maintained that the problem became worse when he refused to support the impeachment of the state Deputy Governor, Mahdi Aliyu Gusau.
“They have been harassing and intimidating me because I refused to support the impeachment of the Deputy Governor. They have been trying to silence me that the impeachment process started.
“That is why I decided to leave the state and come to Abuja because I know that the worse could happen if I remain in Zamfara.”
