We’ll end banditry in Zamfara soon, Matawalle assures residents
Governor Bello Muhammad Matawalle of Zamfara State is optimistic that an end to banditry is in sight in his state, following the outcome of his meeting with leaders of Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association.
The meeting, according to the governor, was fruitful based on the agreement reached with the association at the Government House, Gusau Tuesday night.
Matawalle said the Fulani leaders told him that bandits were willing to surrender their weapons and be law-abiding.
The governor said he gathered that the bandits were tired of their activities, especially because they lacked freedom of movements, access to social needs and others.
He pledged to embrace any bandit, who surrendered and willing to integrate into the society.
Matawalle added that he would provide basic social amenities to repentant bandits and ensure that their children go to schools among others.
He said his government has achieved a lot in the area of security in the last five days after his meeting with President Muhammad Buhari, Vice President Yemi Osibanjo and the Inspector General of Police Mohammed Adamu.
