Over 30 cattle rustlers in Kano State have surrendered their weapons to abandon cattle rustling and other armed robbery activities in the state.
This was in response to Governor Ganduje’s earlier offer of amnesty to cattle rustlers in the state who have decided to stop.
While receiving the repentant rustlers at Gomo village in Sumaila Local Government, Governor Ganduje said that his administration would forward a bill to the Kano State House of Assembly that will seek to address the problem of cattle rustling in Kano.
Governor Ganduje explained that the State Government was already winning the war against cattle rustling and other criminal activities.
He promised to provide the rustlers with the necessary skills that will make them more relevant in the society.
The Kano State Police Commissioner, Musa Katsina, while handing over the repentant cattle rustlers, told the Governor that what was left of the cattle rustling were mop-up operations.
He also disclosed that various weapons were submitted by the cattle thieves.
