Zamfara killings: Matawalle hints on deal with Fulani, bandits’ leaders

Zamfara State Governor, Bello Matawalle, has announced the continuation of peace deal with leaders of bandits operating in the state.

NAN reports that the governor spoke on Saturday in Gusau, while condoling families of those attacked by bandits in some villages.

The governor also sympathized with those affected by the recent attacks in Unguwar Rogo, Karda, Bidda and Kajera of Tsafe Local Government Area as well as Kabaje of Kaura-Namoda LGA.

Matawalle prayed Almighty Allah to grant the souls of those who lost their lives eternal abode in paradise, and their families the courage to bear the loss.

The governor said he has been working round the clock, holding meetings with the security chieftains and other stakeholders.

He said his administration got assurances from the leaders of Fulani groups, “who have embraced our peace overtures that they will reach out to the recalcitrant groups responsible for the attacks and persuade them to accept our peace pact.

“While we are committed to our dialogue and reconciliation initiative, we will spare no effort in enforcing the security of lives and property of our people,” he said.

Matawalle added that the state government would continue to honour the agreement reached with the bandits that prefer peace.

He warned that criminals who reneged will face the full force of the law.

Matawalle appealed to citizens to report suspicious movements to the nearest security post and urged them not to relent in praying for lasting peace in Zamfara and Nigeria.
