A notorious thug in Kano, Kano State, popularly known as Hantar Daba, has surrendered himself to the state police command.

The spokesman of the command, SP Abdullahi Haruna Kiyawa, had asked three top thugs: Nasiru Abdullahi, alias Chile Maidoki of Layin Polewire Kurna; Abba Burakita of Dorayi Karama Quarters and Hantar Daba of Kwanar Disu to report at the command.

After being hesitant to respond to the police invitation within the time frame, a bounty of N500,000 was placed on each of them as they were famous and central to promoting thuggery in Kano metropolis.

Kiyawa explained that Hantar Daba brought himself in the company of his mother and his topmost former rival, now bosom friend, Abba Burakita, leading him to the command.

Kiyawa said, “I am sure you will also recall that Abba Burakita and Chile Maidoki had since reported and surrendered themselves to the command, especially Abba Burakita who later brought his followers totalling 40 on the 26th of October, 2023.

“The good news is that the last person, Hantar Daba, yesterday, 27th of November, 2023, who had been on the run, finally surrendered himself to the police command.

“He was led with joy and happiness by his mother and some family members requesting to be part of the amnesty programme of the state government. Hantar Daba said he was so sorry for the past ugly life and was now ready to participate in the promotion of peace and sustainable development of the state.

“He admitted that he controlled more than 100 followers from his camp who he had a strong influence on and would broker peace with them and bring them to totally change from the longtime supremacy fight (Fadan Yan Daba) regime between Hausawa, Gwale and Kofar Na’isa thug groups.”
