Governor Aminu Bello Masari of Katsina State has urged the repentant bandits to be sincere about the ongoing peace deal for the sustainability of peace in the state.
The governor, who disclosed this at a stakeholders’ security meeting held at Government House, said the government in synergy with security agencies would not hesitate to arrest and prosecute any bandit found violating the peace agreement.
Masari added that the security of lives and property of the citizenry remained the cardinal objective of his administration, hence the need for the repentant hoodlums to be sincere about the colloquy or face the wrath of the law.
He, however, noted that the aim of the security meeting was to review the security situation of the state after a peace dialogue tour with bandits in eight frontline local government areas of the state.
