According to him, the time for dialogue is over.
Bello Turji, the bandit leader whose group has been terrorists in some parts of Zamfara and Sokoto, apparently is feeling the heat of federal troops as dry season exposes the bandits’ hideouts and makes military pounding more effective.
Masari, who has regretted his first dialogue with the criminals, believes Turji is not sincere.
“Dialogue? With who? Who is he to talk of dialogue or ceasefire. He is a liar. He can’t tell us peace accord and dialogue. To sit and discuss peace accord with who? In what capacity is he speaking and even calling for dialogue,”Masari told DW Hausa.
“Go and tell those he (Mr Turji) killed their families to do dialogue with him and see. And he is even setting conditions, what conditions is he setting and for what? He wants dialogue and he is even setting conditions,” the governor said.
While Turji is seeking peace, his men have been levying communities millions of naira so the farmers among them could go and harvest their produce—since the incessant killing by the bandits have scared farers away.
