Banditry Now Punishable By Death In Zamfara
The Zamfara House of Assembly is set to promulgate a law criminalising banditry in the state, while the offence will now be punishable by death.
Speaker, Zamfara State House of Assembly Rt Hon. Nasiru Mu’azu Magarya, says the move is part of efforts to stem the tide of banditry in the state.
He expressed dismay over the recent reprisal attacks in Karaye village of Gummi Local Government Area of the state where many lives were lost and properties worth millions of naira were destroyed.
Speaker Magarya also berated security agencies in the state for not being proactive and live to their duties and for allowing innocent lives perish without making any arrest throughout the period bandits unleashed mayhem and terror in the village.
Condemning the recent attacks in the state, speaker Magarya noted that the attacks will not in any way deter the Bello Mohammed Matawallen led administration in the state from consolidating the peace and reconciliation efforts it started in the state a couple of months back
