Following the reoccurring bandits attacks in the country, a former federal lawmaker Senator Shehu Sani, has said Buhari government should go ahead and declare bandits as federal civil servants since it lacked political will to declare them terrorists.
According to him,”Well-meaning Nigerians, individuals and groups have provided various reason the Buhari administration should declare bandits’ groups in the North as terrorists.
He said in spite of the strong call for federal government to proscribe bandits it remained adamant to the calls, saying that there is a process to declare a group as a terrorist organisation.
It is no longer a news about that bandits and kidnappers are rampaging in the North West, killing, kidnapping and maiming residents.
The Kaduna central former lawmaker, in a tweet on Monday morning, the former lawmaker said, “They (bandits) killed Muslim worshipers in their mosques in Niger and Katsina State; they killed Christians in their Churches in Kaduna State; if the Government doesn’t want to declare them terrorists, it should declare them federal civil servants.”
