Three notorious bandits have repented and surrendered their arms to the Zamfara State Government, including Zakoa Buhari, the son of the feared bandit leader, Tsoho Buhari, notoriously known as ‘Buharin Daji.’

Edujandon.com Nigeria gathered that the arms surrendered at the Government House in Gusau, the state capital, including AK-47 rifles, General Multipurpose Machine Gun (GPMG), Rocket-Propelled Grenade (RPG) and several ammunition were dropped.

After taking an oath with the Holy Quran in the presence of top government officials, security operatives and traditional rulers, the bandits laid down their weapons, vowing not to resort to banditry again.

In 2018, following his refusal to lay down his weapons after peace talks with the state government, Buhari, a notorious and feared armed bandit in the state, was killed in Nakango village in Dansadau Emirate, Maru Local Government District.

Nakango is a border town situated in Kaduna State between Dansadau Emirate in Zamfara and Birnin Gwari Local Government Area.

Several attacks by the late Buhari and his gang members were witnessed by the state, leading to scores of deaths.

Like other North-West states, Zamfara has faced destructive attacks from armed bandits in the last 10 years. The state government signed a peace deal with the gunmen in 2019.
