2 Repentant Bandits Pledge to Join Local Hunters to Defend Communities

Two bandits Gayya Alhaji Abdu, 20, and Siyyo Alhaji Amadu, 21, have turned themselves in to the hunters in Taraba State, confessing their involvement in various kidnapping raids in Taraba.  

They reportedly expressed remorse for their crimes and declared their intention to join the local hunters in defending communities.

“l decided to repent because l could not withstand the horror, and the way and manner the victims were being treated, and also, l don’t want to be killed because most of the kidnappers end up being killed by security agents or hunters,” Abdul said.

Amadu on his part said, “I decided to stop kidnapping and repent, because l discovered that it is a very wicked act to abduct a fellow human being and force him to pay ransom.”

The Taraba State Hunters’ Association welcomed the repentant bandits with open arms. They made them swear with the Holy Qu’ran, pledging to never pick up arms again before they were enlisted as members.
