Matawalle Receives Repentant Bandits, Calls For Appreciation Of Peace Initiative

Some of the arms and ammunitions surrendered by the repentant bandits.

Governor Bello Matawalle of Zamfara State has urged Nigerians to appreciate his administration’s peace and dialogue initiative in the quest to curb banditry and insecurity. 

The governor noted this on Thursday when he received another group of repentant bandits. He believes his reconciliation and dialogue initiative is for the benefit of the country and not Zamfara State alone. 

While insisting that not all Fulanis are criminals, the governor said some of them have been pushed to criminality. 

Some of the weapons and ammunition surrendered by the repentant bandits include seven AK-47, two general-purpose machine guns, one rocket-propelled grenade launcher, several live ammunitions and anti-craft ammunitions.

As the government seeks to tackle criminality, more bandits have been surrendering their weapons and ammunition and embracing the peace initiative of the northwestern state.
