Two repentants bandits commanders hand over ten AK47 riffles to Governor

Two repentant bandits simply identified as Sale Turwa and Muhammed Sani Maidaji, on Wednesday evening handed over 8 AK-47 and 2 AK-47 respectively to Governor Aminu Bello Masari of Kastina state during a security meeting with heads of security agencies in the state.

The Commissioner of Police of Kastina state, Alhaji Sanusi Buba presented the two repentant bandits to the state Governor of the state.

According to the Commissioner of Police, it was the view and consensus of all of the security chiefs in the state to request the Governor to accept the bandits remorse and forgive them, adding that it will serve as encouragement for others to return arms and turn a new leaf.

The Governor, while describing the development as a significant milestone against banditry and other criminality in the state, urged security operatives not to relent in their fight against crime, adding that their efforts should be doubled.

He said; “I have instructed the security operatives to deal ruthlessly with the bandits until they are rendered permanently ineffective.’’

“We are no more going to negotiate with them, but if on their volition they decide to renounce their violent criminal ways and embrace peace, we are ready to listen to them’’.

“Even then, they must surrender all the arms and ammunition in their possession, otherwise they remain enemies to be dealt with accordingly, as far as we are concerned’’.

“Government is always ready to receive, forgive and rehabilitate repentant bandits, as long as they surrender all the arms and ammunition in their possession, but it is not up to us to romance with them.’’

The Governor while commending the two bandits for taking a bold step in their decision to drop their arms, advised other criminals to follow suit, adding that the window of grace won’t be open for a long time.
