Govt considering amnesty  for bandits in Katsina, others – Gov. Masari
By Steve Oko
There are plans to grant amnesty to the marauding bandits wrecking havoc in Katsina State  and other parts of North West.
 Governor Aminu Bello Masari who gave the hint on Thursday, said he is working with other state governors in the Northwest zone to consider dialogue and amnesty to bandits for peace to reign in the region.
The former Speaker House of Representatives  Masari who stated this while briefing newsmen in Katsina on the outcome of the state’s extended Security Council meeting which lasted for over five hours at the government house, said Government was exploring options to end the menace.
According to the governor , only a collective, united and common approach to the issue of dialogue and amnesty in the North West zone could help address and end the menace in the zone.
 His words : “Part of what we discussed in the meeting is the effect of what is going on in Zamfara State. And how it affects Katsina State because, right now, Zamfara is in the process of making what they call dialogue which we did some years ago. We started it in Katsina but we realised that for it to be successful, it has to be done in Katsina, Sokoto, Kebbi and Kaduna states.
 “So, without collective approach to the issue of amnesty in the North West, I don’t think it would work because, we are in a better position to say it because, we have previous experience.
