A man, Auwalun Daudawa, has said that he is the one who led the bandits who kidnapped pupils of the Kankara, Katsina State, pupils late last year.
He, however, said he had repented, claiming he did so without collecting any money from the state government.
“We have voluntarily repented and seek no single kobo from any government, group or individual for that.”
“I was convinced by the state government approach on peace reconciliation with armed bandits, I learnt from those repented before me that, there was not single plan by the governments through use of security agencies to harm me and my boys, therefore, we are now back for normal lives like other peace-loving Nigerians,” Daudawa said in the presence of Zamfara State Governor, Bello Matawlale.
He also surrendered 20 AK 47 rifles, ammunition and a rocket-propelled grenade (RPG) launcher to the government.
