Niger grants amnesty to 13 killer bandits

13 suspected armed bandits arrested by security operatives along Kontonkoro axis in Magama Local Government Area of the state have received amnesty from the Niger State Government

The state governor, Gov. Abubakar Bello made this known while delivering a keynote address at the 2nd General Abdulsalami Abubakar Foundation Annual Peace Lecture on Saturday in Minna.

Bello said the bandits were released based on the dialogue and peace accord as well as agreement reached by the government and bandits from the area in August.

According to the governor the peace deal had led to gradual reduction in activities of armed banditry and kidnappings in the area.

He said; “After hearing them on why they decided to engage themselves in such activities, we had to go into a peace agreement with them in the interest of peace and for them to help us with useful information to tackle spate of insecurity in the state”.

The governor noted that they have been cooperating and helping security agencies with useful information on how to identify the unrepentant bandits who were still terrorising the state.

Bello said the repentant suspects have been engaged into various trade and skill acquisition programmes, adding that the same approach would apply with bandits in Pandogari, Allawa and Erena areas of the state.
