My administration will no longer give bandits amnesty, we’ll give them war– Gov Matawalle

Gov. Bello Matawalle of Zamfara State has vowed that his administration will no longer give bandits terrorizing some parts of the state amnesty, saying they have rejected the peace moves extended to them.

He stated this while addressing a congregation in Gusau, the state capital on Saturday.

“My administration will no longer grant amnesty to bandits as they have failed to embrace the peace initiative earlier extended to them,’’ the governor said.

Matawalle called on all residents to be patient and to support new security measures put in place to flush out bandits and other criminal elements across the state.

According to the governor, the current barrage of attacks on bandits by security forces had made them make a fresh overture to the government seeking dialogue stressing that the time for amnesty has passed.

He revealed that the bloodthirsty bandits’ emissaries informed him that they had repented and were ready to dialogue with the government.

Governor Matawalle warned politicians in the state against giving any form of support to bandits, stressing that: “politicians should fear God and stop buying motorcycles to distribute to people who, in turn, sell to bandits to perpetrate their evil acts.’’

Recall that Zamfara had cut off food, petroleum products supply and other essential commodities from the reach of the bandits in their various camps as security operatives sustained an offensive against the assailants.
