Governor Bello Matawalle of Zamfara state has said that the amnesty offer for bandits have been taken off the table as they rejected it before now.
Matawalle who spoke in Gusau, Zamfara state capital said bandits are now seeking for dialogue following the ongoing offensive carried out by the military in the state.
The Governor appealed to residents to be patient and support new security measures put in place to flush out bandits and their collaborators to restore peace in the state, and also warned politicians against giving any form of support to bandits to perpetuate their evil acts.
“My administration will no longer grant amnesty to bandits as they have failed to embrace the peace initiative earlier extended to them.”
