Some elder statesmen in Zamfara State have accused security agents in the state of indiscriminately releasing arrested bandits and their collaborators, describing it as one of the factors responsible for the escalation of the insecurity in the state.

According to Channels TV, the group raised the alarm at a meeting in Gusau, the state capital. A former member of the National Assembly who represented Zamfara Central constituency, Senator Saidu Dansadau, briefed journalists on behalf of the group at the end of the meeting. He said;

“The committee expresses its dismay and disappointment for indiscriminate release of criminals by the authorities who either arrest them or to whom the criminals are handed over when they are arrested by the military, vigilante group, or any other security organisation.

We appeal to the law enforcement agencies in the state to, for the sake of God, have a paradigm shift from this indiscriminate release of criminals and resort to arraigning the criminals in the court of law because the meeting identified this indiscriminate and incessant release of criminals as one of the immediate causes of the escalation of criminality in the state.”
