Katsina State Government has warned un-repented bandits to surrender or face military action.

The Secretary to the State Government, Mustapha Muhammad Inuwa gave the warning at a meeting with repented bandits and top security chiefs.

He spoke with newsmen shortly after a closed door meeting with repented bandits.

“Enough is enough, government will no longer continue to allow kidnapping of innocent citizens, killing and stealing of cows.

“We advise un-repented bandits to surrender and release all kidnapped innocent people unconditionally or face military action,” the SSG stated.

Our correspondent reports that the recent meeting was summoned after military invaded hideout of bandits and killed more than 100 as well recovered weapons.

The military action followed attacks by the bandits in Jibia, Malumfashi, Batsari and Kurfi Local Government Areas.

The attacks by the bandits violated the peace deal initiated by the state government last year.

Inuwa, who chaired the recent meeting, held at Old Government House, said government has resolved not to hold any meeting with bandits, emphasising that: “Enough is enough.”

He said government had initiated a peace deal with bandits and anyone who refused to abide with it would face the wrath of the government.

“Henceforth, no any meeting with bandits, we will use military and other security agents to deal with any one of them refusing to accept peace deal,” he explained.

Inuwa said the repentant bandits were working with government to bring lasting peace in the state.

Meanwhile, leaders of Fulani cultural organisation, Miyetti Allah have appealed to unrepentant bandits to accept peace in the interest of Fulani ethnic group.

Ardo Lawal Gamji Kankara made the appeal, saying further that repentant bandits should be forced to swear with Qur’an so as not to breach the peace deal again.

Gamji spoke at an election of the executives of the state branch of the association held in the state recently.

The Triumph reports that during the meeting, leaders of Fulani discussed extensively on problem of kidnapping and way forward.
