Man behind the abduction of some students from a secondary school in Kankara, Katsina state, Auwalun Daudawa, has “repented” and tendered his ammunition.
The Cable has it that Daudawa and five of his lieutenants surrendered a rocket-propelled grenade (RPG) launcher and 20 AK 47 rifles ammunition to the Zamfara state government on Monday, February 8.
Recall that on December 11, 2020, over 300 schoolboys were Kidnapped from their secondary school, barely hours after President Buhari landed the state for a private visit. The students regained their freedom after a week in captivity. The governor of Zamfara state, Bello Matawalle, had said the boys were rescued through the help of Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria (MACBAN) and that no ransom was paid.
The bandit while speaking after he took an oath of repentance on Monday at the government house in Gusau, the capital of Zamfara state, said his group voluntarily surrendered and are not seeking money from any government or individual.
“We have voluntarily repented and seek no single kobo from any government, group or individual for that.”
“I was convinced by the state government approach on peace reconciliation with armed bandits, I learnt from those repented before me that, there was not single plan by the governments through use of security agencies to harm me and my boys, therefore, we are now back for normal lives like other peace-loving Nigerians.”Daudawa said
The state governor on his part, said the development is a result of his administration’s efforts to ensure that there is peace in Zamfara State.
“The development will not only gradually paste the name of Zamfara unto the list of most peaceful places in the country, but will facilitate the return of the lost commercial enterprising to the state,” the governor said
