Nigeria’s minister of police affairs, Mohammed Dangyadi, says the regime of President Muhammadu Buhari plans to reintegrate back into the society bandits who surrender to the federal government.
Asked by Channels TV on Tuesday if the President Muhammadu Buhari regime was considering amnesty for them, Mr Dangyadi said the Buhari regime was listening to surrendering bandits and is ready to receive and reintegrate them into the society.
“When you talk of amnesty, it is a relative term. What the federal government is trying to say is that let us try and see those who have surrendered their arms, let us listen to them, let us chronicle them, let us receive them. We cannot just throw them away because they are Nigerians,” Mr Dangyadi said.
Citing international law, Mr Dangyadi said though bandits have committed crimes, those that surrender would be received and reintegrated into the society.
“Of course, they are criminals; they have committed atrocities, committed crimes. But, according to international law, when you surrender from war, you are not killed or maimed,” Mr Dangyadi said, adding, “You are allowed to have your say.”
I have been reporting for several years now and I am very interested in visual news reportage with strong inclusion of photos and video multimedia.
