If the police officers and the people who always give these reports to the police keep up their good work, Nigeria would become much more peaceful in a very short amount of time. Kudos to them.

He should be held accountable to the highest possible degree under the law. And we can only hope that this will serve as a strong deterrent to the rest of them who are still out there.

This is a good idea because if they are prosecuted after being caught, it would serve as a deterrent to those who committed similar offenses in the future; but, if prosecution is not pursued after arrest, it will be a waste of time.

Instead of granting amnesty to these criminals, the government need to do the responsible thing and wipe out all of them. They say they have changed their ways, but in reality, what they are trying to do is get away from the wrath of the government.

Government should do the needful by exterminating these bandits rather than grant them amnesty. It will continue to serve as a deterrent to others. We will continue to fight against insecurity. Non stop!

A man in his fifties was detained by the Zamfara Police Command on the allegation that he had been involved in cattle rustling and the trafficking of stolen animals in various parts of the state.

I am quite relieved that the culprits were apprehended because it was discovered that they were in possession of several stolen animals, which they were attempting to sell.

They should be severely dealt with. And hopefully this arrest won’t just end on the news. We’ve heard of the arrest of bandit leaders over the years, and nothing serious happened afterwards

Government should do the needful by exterminating these bandits rather than grant them amnesty. They claim to have repented but what they are doing in essence is to avoid government wrath.

Several times we have heard about the arrest of Boko Haram kingpin and other terror group only to turn out that they were not actually killed or arrested. I hope such is not the case with this bandits leader that was arrested.

They should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. And hopefully, this will send a stern warning to the rest of them out there.

Arrest and re-arrest of all these criminals will not change anything unless the government is ready to charge them and prosecute them for there crime.Many of them have been arrest before and later was released to the society and that is the major reason the criminals will continue there act.
