Four leaders of gangs of bandits terrorising Katsina State have voluntarily surrendered themselves to the police, along with several arms and ammunition, as well as rustled cows.
Parading the repentant bandits at the police headquarters in the state, Police Commissioner, Sanusi Buba identified the four to include Sale and Mani Turwa, Ado Sarki and Sani Mai-daji.
Buba, who was represented by command’s spokesperson, Gambo Isah, said the bandits surrendered 23 AK-47 rifles, two General Purpose Machine Guns (GPMG), one AK-49, rifle, 109 GPMG ammunition, and 94 7.62mm live ammunition of AK-47 rifle.
“We are not begging or even persuading them to surrender,” the commissioner said
“The Nigeria Police force and other sister security agencies will leave no stone unturned in isolating and dealing decisively with individuals and groups of unrepentant bandits who refuse to surrender and keep hibernating in the forests.
“The Command wishes to assure the good people of the state that banditry and other crimes will soon become history as the security forces are on top of the situation.”
