Matawalle Receives Repentant Bandits, Calls For Appreciation Of Peace Initiative


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 when he received another group of repentant bandits in the state late Thursday.

Governor Matawale 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 embraced the peace initiative of the northwestern state.

On Tuesday, seven repentant bandits surrendered their weapons to the government and vowed to abandon their former ways.

They also welcomed the reconciliation process, released eight kidnapped victims who are mostly women.

The governor while receiving the seven repentant bandits and eight women who were kidnapped, thanked God for the successes recorded in the fight against banditry in the state.

    Our course is bitter like the tiger chasing a mere tortoise that ends up playing with the claws and teeth’s of the dangerous tiger and unfortunately most wild animals. I cried with the news of murdered fathers land oh mothers land as well. I am devastated about the origin of my country and science MEN came with its complexities of varieties of weapons of mass destruction, yet “Black n Back” from the Neanderthals world. Where are the Changes? Where are the Future Leaders that came from yesterday?

    We have been called “Lazy” by animals and humans yet strong beyond measure, surviving every trail that wants to end our lives. We stood with our two legs and even those with three legs are standing tall tirelessly over the evil that men are conformed to in the name of religious extremism in a diverse ethnicity with an out whacked pride of insubordination towards the power of the people by the people and for the people. Peaceful Protesters are wallowing behind bars and some starving drastically and dehydrated while Terrorists, Bandits and pioneers’ of evil vices threatening and their allies are CASHING OUT under a failed system of harmony. Where is the Change? Who are the Leaders of Today from yesterday?

    We are Nigerians in Nigeria, we are Nigerians in diaspora, we are Nigerians in the presidential villa and we are Nigerians in the streets.
