Residents of Dansadau in Zamfara state have reportedly celebrated a month without bandits attack. This was disclosed by Audu Bulama Bukarti, a human right advocate.
According to him, this celebration was not as a result of government's efforts. He said bandits did not attack the people because they had a deal with the criminals.
"Today, the people of Dansadau of Zamfara celebrated one month without attack. But just before you start hailing and insulting well-meaning people… This is not due to government effort. It’s because Dansadau people struck an agreement with the terrorists. They said they submitted to the terrorists because government has failed them. Can there be worse failure of government? What is the function of government?"

The primary function of government is to protect life and properties of the citizens, it now seems that Nigeria is having two governments in operation, to the honest, we don't have responsible government. Our leaders are there amassing wealth, throwing their subjects into poor and brutish life."

I suggest that the entire populace should reconfigure our attitudes irrespective of our differences so that God can save us. But I don't think if spreading all these blatant criticism could yield a good result."
