We Signed Peace Accord With Bandits To Avoid Loss Of Lives But They Betrayed Us – Governor Masari
Masari noted that he was the first governor to have signed an agreement with bandits saying until recently, the bandits had honoured the agreement.
“We chose to sign a peace agreement with the bandits to avoid loss of lives and property, but it didn’t yield a positive result. This time around, we will hand it over to security personnel.
“In our efforts to honour the agreement between us, we cancelled all vigilantes and volunteer groups and we allowed them (bandits) to continue with their normal activities in the state,” he said.
