Federal Government Knows The Identity Of Bandits And Their Camps But… — Nigerian Governor Reveals

 

The Governor of Kaduna state, Nasir El-Rufai has expressed sadness and frustration over the recent train attack by Bandits.

El-rufai, disclosed to journalist that the Nigerian Military knows the location of the Bandits but has refused to bomb their hideout.

Speaking on the incident, the fiery politician said; “We have enough intelligence for us to take action. The Air Force undertakes enough ISR (Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance); and the DSS has informants all over the place.”

“We know what they (terrorists) are planning. We get the reports. The problem is for the agencies to take action. Don’t wait until they attack before you respond. The Army should go after their enclaves to wipe them out. Let the Air Force bomb them.”

“Before, they were categorized as bandits and if you bombed them, you would have issues with human rights organizations and international criminal courts and so on. But, now that they have been declared terrorists by the court, they can be legally killed without any consequences from international human rights organizations.”

Governor, Nasir El Rufai, also admitted that the Nigerian government has knowledge of the identity of bandits and their camps.

Speaking on Wednesday in reaction to the attack by bandits of an Abuja-Kaduna train on Monday evening, the governor said authorities also listen to the conversations of the armed groups terrorizing the North-West.

According to El-Rufai; “We know where their camps are. We know their camps, we have the maps; we know everything. We have their phone numbers and listen to their conversation sometimes. But it has to be done across the five states”.

The governor who noted that the Nigerian military was originally reluctant to bomb the camps of the bandits to avoid civilian collateral damage, added that since a competent court has declared them terrorists, the rule of engagement has changed. He said; “This is war“.

“We know what they (terrorists) are planning. We get the reports. The problem is for the agencies to take action. Don’t wait until they attack before you respond. The Army should go after their enclaves to wipe them out. Let the Air Force bomb them”.
