Nigerian social media is currently heated up as many have angrily responded to the news that the Governor of Kastina State, Aminu Bello Masari met with two repentant bandits.
According to the Spokesperson of the Command, SP Isah Gambo via a statement released in Wednesday, the two gang leaders repented as a result of pressure mounted by security agencies.
“The gang leaders Sale Turwa, ‘M’, aged 30yrs and Muhammadu Sani Maidaji, ‘M’, aged 33yrs both of Illella village, Safana LGA of Katsina state have surrendered and repented before His Excellency, the Executive Governor of Katsina state, Rt. Hon Aminu Bello Masari, CFR, fnim, the Commissioner of Police, Katsina state Command, Commander 17 Brigade, Katsina, and Director Department of State Security Services,” said Gambo.
“The repented bandits have surrendered ten (10) AK 47 rifles to the Commissioner of Police. Investigation is ongoing.”
This didn’t go down well with many Nigerians who have said that bandits are receiving prefential treatment just because they said they have repented but unharmed protesters are shot on sight.
