A top bandits’ commander on Monday surrendered 28 AK-47 rifles, with 27 magazines, and General machine gun to the Zamfara State government.
This is coming after six repentant bandits surrendered 14 rifles to the state authorities, after they renounce armed banditry,
The Governor of Zamfara state, Bello Matawalle had said last week that he was talking to some top commanders of bandits in the State to lay down their arms and embrace peace.
The repentant bandits, who swore by the Holy Qur’an in Government House, declared that they would not go back to banditry. Their leader, Auwalu Daudawa, also promised to convince those who were yet to repent to do so.
