Governor Bello Matawalle of Zamfara has said that the state government is no longer interested in dialoguing with bandits since they rejected the olive branch stretched at them earlier.
He said that instead, security forces would flush them (bandits) out of the state.
The governor also noted that some of the bandits were running out of Zamfara to other states as a result of the new security measures introduced by the state government following the recent surge in killings and abduction of citizens.
Governor Matawalle warned politicians in the state against giving any form of support to bandits, stressing that: “politicians should fear God and stop buying motorcycles to distribute to people who, in turn, sell to bandits to perpetuate their evil acts.’’
