Seven notorious bandits have renounced banditry and surrendered dangerous weapons including 14 AK 47 rifles and some rounds of live ammunitions to Zamfara State Government.
The repentant bandits who swore with the Glorious Qur’an before Governor Bello Muhammad, Heads of Security Agencies, Traditional and religious Leaders at Government House Gusau vowed that they would never go back to their past ways or become informants to their former colleagues.
The development is pursuant to the renewed commitment of Zamfara State Government and other stakeholders to continue with the dialogue and reconciliation Initiative.
Governor Bello Muhammad says doors are still open for all bandits that are willing to embrace peace as full military action will be taken against the recalcitrant ones amongst them.
Zamfara State Commissioner for Security and Home Affairs, Abubakar Muhammad Dauran said the repentant bandits will be rehabilitated and reintegrated in to the society.
