Bandits Are Like Animals, They Deserve Death Penalty-Matawalle




The governor of Zamfara State,  Bello Matawalle, has justified the death penalty approved for anyone convicted of banditry, kidnapping, cattle rustling, or cultism in the state.

Matawalle spoke on Wednesday, September 28, when he was interviewed on Journalists’ Hangout, a Television Continental (TVC) program.

According to him, the state government has tried several approaches towards curbing banditry in the state, but such measures were not 100 percent successful.

“God knows I have adopted so many options for this crisis to leave the state, but unfortunately, there are good and bad people in any society.

“We’ve tried all we can. I’ve adopted so many options in the state and most of the options have yielded a lot of results.

“I’ve done dialogue. I shutdown the network. We cut the food supply and we saw successes, but it’s not 100 percent. The bandits fear the Yansakai vigilante group because they use a fabricated weapons. They put motorcycle plugs into it. Bandits fear that weapon; the weapon cuts the bandits into two.

“They see Yansakai as the most devilish people. I know why I gave that directive and I’ve succeeded with that directive I’ve given.”

When asked if the death penalty will work in the state owing to the fact that it’s not a popularly accepted approach globally, the governor said he is sure it will work.
