Some civil servants have been arrested for banditry in Zamfara State, according to the State Government.
According to a statement signed by the State Commissioner for Information, Ibrahim Magaji Dosara on Wednesday, the civil servants were among the 35 suspects apprehended in Gusau, the state capital.
The criminals have been interrogated and have confessed to their various crimes and have already been transferred to Abuja for further action before prosecution.
The state government has therefore seriously warned bandits to renounce the criminality and embrace the state government dialogue and peace initiative.
The government has also warned traditional rulers to keep vigil on landlords who give out their houses to people with suspicious character within their domains, stating that the government will not hesitate to demolish any house given out on rent to criminals.
