The Commissioner noted that the call became imperative considering the fact that people of the state respect the Islamic teachings more than any advocacy, hence the need for the clerics to support the peace process of the state through the village to village preachings to enlighten their communities on the dangers of criminal activities and importance of peace in their Socio-economic development.

Mr. Abutu Yaro who spoke to Fulanis in the emirate through an interpreter, DSP Sadiq Umar, said for the communities to enjoy Health Facilities, quality education, water supply among others, they need to embrace peace and encourage their brothers to surrender their weapons.

“I am pledging that the police command under my watch would provide adequate security and other logistics to clerics who may want to go to the villages to preach peace” he assured.

However, the Zamfara State Commissioner for Security and Home Affairs, Hon. Abubakar Muhammad Dauran charged security agencies to commence onslaught to recalcitrant bandits as they refused to key into the peace and reconciliation initiative of the State Government.

He accused some communities of aiding the bandits as informers and collaborators in executing their plans.
