Zamfara Offers N2m Reward, Probes Koran Pages In Sewage

Zamfara State government has offered a 2 million Naira reward, for any credible information on those responsible for the dumping of some pages of Holy Koran, in the sewage of a primary school in the state.

It also set up a 23 member committee, including top Islamic scholars, security agencies chiefs, journalists and other relevant stakeholders, to investigate the circumstances surrounding the incident.

Secretary to the state government, Bala Mawuu, who announces the measures in a statement, says they were approved by Governor Bello Maitawale, who is attending the Africa Investment Summit in the US.

He says that security agencies had also been deployed to monitor movement of people and arrest anyone attempting to abuse Koran.
