President Buhari Directs Governor Masari To Strike A Deal With Bandits In Katsina [Video] 3

President Muhammadu Buhari has directed the Katsina State Governor, Aminu Masari, to strike a deal and convince the hordes of brutal bandits who are killing, raping and kidnapping people in his violence-ridden home state.

During the so-called peace meeting, Governor Masari met with members of a group of bandits terrorizing Katsina and expressed willingness to strike a ceasefire deal with them.

On their part, the bandits were demanding the release of arrested colleagues before accepting to dialogue the government.

One of the bandits, Idris Yayande said some of their members were apprehended and kept in detention for years without committing any offence. He said:

“Our biggest complaint is that some of our members were unjustly arrested and detained for years in different prisons across the state.

“We have Alhaji Lawal Bandu, Ibrahim Nabutamu, Sani Marji, Sani Zafi, Lawal Mairuwa and there are some of our children that were arrested by the Army in Layin-Mahuta last year— Juro, Ali, Adamu, Abdulrahman— and since then nobody told us where they are and what happened to them.

“Government should release them before dialogue. We have vowed not to allow anybody farm within this area, but because of the dialogue we surrendered.

“So we are pleading with the state government to release them to us. We don’t have anybody in our custody now and if you hear of any attack it is not from us.”

On his part, Governor Masari noted that he was directed by President Buhari to meet them. He said the state government would secure the release of their members in detention to ensure that peace and normalcy return in the state.

Masari also expressed optimism that the dialogue would bring peace to the state, North-West and Nigeria in general.
