The Catholic Archbishop of Lagos, Most Rev. Alfred Martins, has asked the Federal Government to punish Fulani herdsmen who are perpetrating evil in the country.
Martins, on the sidelines of the inauguration of the Mission House, Catholic Church of Resurrection, Magodo, Lagos, on Saturday said the feeling among many Nigerians was that the killer herdsmen were being protected by the Federal Government.
Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai, has said that Fulani bandits are used to getting big money and will not repent, adding that anyone preaching to them is wasting their time.
The governor reiterated that Kaduna was at war with the criminal elements, pointing out “my administration is at war with the bandits and so we cannot negotiate. Eliminating them is the only solution to banditry.”
Bandit Commander Surrenders
Six more bandits led by their leader called Auwalu Daudawa surrendered 28 AK 47 rifles, with 27 magazines, and General Machine Gun to Zamfara state government on Monday.
About ten days ago six repentant bandits submitted 14 rifles to the state authorities pledging to renounce armed banditry and other forms of crimes.
The repentant bandits, who swore by the Qur’an in Government House, declared that they would not go back to banditry.
Their leader, Auwalu Daudawa, also promised to convince those who were yet to repent to do so.
Should the federal government continue forgiving repentant bandits?
Do you think SHEKAU should be forgiven?
