One of the bandit leaders in Zamfara Auwalun Daudawa and his group members surrendered 20 AK47 rifles and five more dangerous weapons to Governor Bello Muhammad Matawalle 


The weapons surrendered by the bandits were handed down to the State police command by the Governor.

In a statement by Governor’s Spokes Person Malam Zailani Bappa, said in a brief ceremony at the premises of the Governor’s office on Monday Auwalun Daudawa handed over the weapons and also, along with his teammates, swore with the Holy Quran not to revert to his old ways.


Zailani Bappa said, Auwalun Daudawa said he was not surrendering his weapons out of fear of anything but for the belief that Governor Matawalle is sincere in his peace deal and that he and his team are tired of their old ways.

“In all the battles and conflicts so far, I have never feared anything nor got wounded even once. I thank God that I am liberated by his mercy and I ask for pardon and forgiveness from the society” Auwalu said.


He said he is no longer interested in going back to the bush but ask Governor Matawalle to allow him stay in Gusau and go back to school.

Governor Matawalle commended the courage of Auwalun Daudawa for embracing the peace along with all his team and promised that his administration will never renege on its promise to honor all the terms agreed in the peace deal and will continue to woo others in the bush until there was no more bandits remaining in the state.
