The alleged mastermind of the abduction of 344 students of Government Science Secondary School, Kankara, has ‘repented’ and surrendered his riffles.
It would be recalled that 344 students of Government Science Secondary School, Kankara, Katsina State were abducted from their hostel by bandits on Dec. 11, 2020, and regained their freedom after one week in captivity.
According to a fresh report by The Cable, Daudawa and five of his lieutenants surrendered 20 AK 47 rifles, ammunition and a rocket-propelled grenade (RPG) launcher to the Zamfara state government on Monday, February 8.
Speaking after he took an oath of repentance on Monday at the government house in Gusau, the capital of Zamfara state, the bandit said;
“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, Aminu Bello Masari said the development is a result of his administration’s efforts to ensure that there is peace in Zamfara.
“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
