Zamfara Governor, Dr. Bello Matawalle, will grant amnesty to 100 Fulani in Gusau prison as part of the ongoing peace process in the state.
The Fulani, who are detained for offences related to the banditry menace in the state, will be released before the week runs out to celebrate Sallah with their families.
Muhammad stated this when he received representatives of the Fulani community at the centre of the peace process in the forest wielding guns and detaining abductees.
The Governor lamented the plight of the Fulanis today, not only in Zamfara but in the country at large where they are termed as terrorists worse than Boko Haram.
He promised to work in line with his administration’s determination to save the Fulani from themselves and the wrath of the larger society.
As a measure of addressing the problem, Matawalle said their North-West Governors meeting held in Katsina last week outlawed vigilantes against banditry otherwise known as “Yan Sa Kai”.
Matawalle called on all the Fulani in the state to disregard anyone who goes around telling them that the Government was not sincere about the peace process.
Alhaji Bello promised that all the known bandits will listen to the new sermon and surrender their weapons because they will listen to them.
He assured that the Fulani in the state will adhere to the new pact and ensure a lasting peace in the state.
