In 2019, the state government entered a peace agreement with the gunmen.

In 2020, about 15 brand new Hilux vehicles and cash gifts were given to leaders of different “repentant” gangs of bandits by the governor.

In spite of all these, the communities in the state have been under one form of attack or the other and in each case, residents are either killed or kidnapped.
