In 2023, hundreds of Kalare boys surrendered their arms and renounced their activities, responding to a call for peace and rehabilitation.

This effort is carried out in collaboration with an entrepreneurial center, which facilitated the training program.

He urged Governor Yahaya and the Emir of Gombe, Alhaji Dr. Abubakar Shehu Abubakar III, to develop strategic plans to assist these reformed boys. Hammari emphasized that such efforts would significantly contribute to making Gombe a center of peace in Northeast Nigeria.
