A notorious bandit leader, Halilu Sububu, has blamed daily attacks in Nigeria on a breach of agreement on the part of the government.
Speaking with Daily Trust at his enclave in Sububu forest located between Zamfara and Sokoto States, Sububu called on President Muhammadu Buhari to come for talks with them.
He called on the federal government to treat Hausa, Yoruba and the Fulani the same way.
“It (agreement) has been breached. You have asked for armistice, an agreement was reached but you left that person in a forest with a gun and nothing to substitute,” Halilu Sububu said.
“What do you expect? How do you want that person to survive? All the promises made to us, none of it was fulfilled.
“Enrol the young ones in school…we should be treated the same way. Give them jobs with the government, put them in schools.
“The President should personally come and preside over the talks. When he was campaigning, he traveled all over, why would he not do it now?”
“He (Buhari) does not take these peace talks seriously, and everyday people are being killed”, he added.
