Zamfara state governor, Bello Matawalle has ruled out amnesty offer for bandits saying that the terrorists had rejected the offer before now.
Matawalle made this known in Gusau, Zamfara state capital saying bandits are now seeking for dialogue following the ongoing offensive carried out by the military in the state.
The Governor urged residents to be patient and support new security measures aimed at flushing out bandits and their collaborators to restore peace in the state.
He also warned politicians against giving any form of support to bandits to perpetuate their evil acts.
“My administration will no longer grant amnesty to bandits as they have failed to embrace the peace initiative earlier extended to them,” Matawalle said.
