According to the governor, 23 AK47, seven General Purpose Machine guns, 50 locally made rifles and two M4 magazines as well as 30 empty magazines were recovered from them.
This, he said, was in compliance with the terms of the on-going negotiation with them.
Tambuwal, however, called on states affected by banditry to embrace dialogue as a tool to fight the trend in order to have lasting peace.
“We have to arrive at a common stand to actualise a responsive approach that would bring peace especially in the North-west axis which is the worst hit by the menace,” he said.
He described the feat as a remarkable milestone which would not have been successful without the cooperation, support and understanding of all security agencies in the state.
