  The Nigerian Army says it is observing an operational pause to gauge the commitment of parties involved in a dialogue initiated by Zamfara State Government with suspected cattle rustlers.

A statement issued on Thursday, Acting Director, Army Public Relations, Colonel Sani Kukasheka Usman, disclosed: “As part of the concerted efforts to resolve the issue of livestock rustling and armed banditry in the 1 Division Nigerian Army area of responsibility, there is substantial progress on the peace initiative led by Zamfara State government after intense military operations.

“Subsequently, a dialogue was held today at Gobirawa Chali village, Dansadau Emirate, Maru Local Government Area of Zamfara State led by the Deputy Governor. Also in attendance were traditional rulers as well as suspected livestock rustlers including the notorious Buharin Daji.”

The Army said suspected rustlers and armed bandits stated that their grouse include wanton attacks by unauthorised vigilantes against Fulani communities.

It also stated that commitment to stop the reprisal attacks on communities was made to allow for further discussion by the stakeholders.

“The government of the state appreciated the role of the Nigerian Army in facilitating the meeting and described it as unprecedented as it was the first time such peace meeting was held with key stakeholders.

“A follow up meeting by the state government is scheduled in due course. It is expected that this would lead to a sustainable peace in the state,” the Army said.
