Surrender A Rifle, Get Two Cows - Governor Matawalle Tells Bandits by ExAngel007(f): 5:27pm On Jul 16, 2020

Governor Bello Muhammad Matawalle of Zamfara state said his administration would give two cows for each AK47 rifle surrendered by repentant bandit in the state.

Matawalle spoke on Thursday when he hosted Inspector General of Police Mohammed Adamu, Director General, Department of State Security Services, Yusuf Bichi and other heads of Intelligence Units of military and police.

According to him, “For every rifle submitted by a repentant bandit, there would be compensation of two cows.

“We don’t want to give them money, so they wouldn’t use the money to purchase new weapons.

“We said we will compensate them with cows, they are Fulani and they need the cows to advance their economic interest.

“We also told the repentant bandits that all “Dabas” (Camps) in the forests should be disbanded. We won’t accept a situation where the bandits will disarm and then go back to the forest and be staying in these
camps or Dabas

“We asked them to either come to town and be reintegrated into the society or be given economic empowerment where they are, so that they would start a new life.

“Most of them are residing in forests under the shades of trees and inside caves. That is why we came up with RUGA policy to help them”

Governor Matawalle further disclosed that Zamfara state is the epicentre of armed banditry in the country, adding that if the security operatives could deal with the menace in the state, the whole North West and by extension the country in general would be secured.

“Why I said so is because all the bandits’ super camps and their leaders are in Zamfara state.

“We need proper coordination among the security formation in the country.

“There should be synergy among the security agencies because when these criminals are attacked in the neighbouring Katsina state, they escape to Zamfara,Sokoto and Kebbi states”

IGP Adamu said President Muhammadu Buhari had given them marching order to stop the carnage all over the nation because he is very much concerned about the security situation of the country.

This is very similar to the approach by Yaradua's government with Niger delta militants. Honestly, it is a welcome development wink

Can cows kill?
Re: Surrender A Rifle, Get Two Cows - Governor Matawalle Tells Bandits by SarkinYarki: 5:33pm On Jul 16, 2020
Joker's !!!! Another ploy to use scarce taxpayers monies to buy cows for Fulani ... A single AK 47 cost 500k today and two AK 47 can buy 4 big crowd or 5 small ones and one AK47 can kidnap 20 people that can raise 20 million that will buy over 100 cows ...

If I have a rifle, I won't surrender it. Politicians, cultists and the police sold it to those rascals

I really don't blame the Governor, he has ran out of ideas and just as helpless as Buhari because security agencies have lost grip of this war against banditry.

It's really a pity we have found ourselves in this mess!
