Amotekun Arrest 15 Persons 

No fewer than 15 persons have been arrested by the men of the Ondo State Security Network Agency, also known as Amotekun Corps, for illegally mining gold in the Owo Local Government Area of the state.

The suspects, who were from the northern part of the country, were said to have been apprehended in about 50 different locations in the local government.


30,000 Volunteers Get New Federal Jobs

The Federal Government has revealed that about 73,000 exited N-Power volunteers have been trained and 30,000 of them deployed to 774 local government areas as agric enumerators.

The Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, Alhaji Sabo Nanono, stated this on Monday.


Archbishop Speaks

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.


El-Rufai Speaks

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?
