In another report by The Punch, the Yobe state governor said Marafa was embarking on a political suicide mission.

Fresh crisis rocks Zamfara APC as ex-gov Yari’s camp reportedly splits
Legit.ng previously reported that a fresh crisis has engulfed the Zamfara state chapter of the APC as the camp of the former state governor, Abdulaziz Yari, allegedly split into two over the recent state congress.
Yari's camp had on February this year collapsed with the faction of Marafa, following the intervention of the presidency and the national leadership of the APC, a development that ended the three years crisis in the state chapter of the party.
There was relative peace in the party until the defection of the state governor, Bello Matawalle, in June this year.
