Buhari should declare “full-fledged” war on bandits – Gov Bello charges

He vowed that the government and security agencies will intensify efforts to ensure the perpetrators are apprehended.

Since bandits have been designated as terrorists, Niger’s governor, Abubakar Bello, believes it is time to wage a “full-fledged war” against them.

The governor was reacting to a recent attack on the settlements of Nakudna and Wurukuci in Niger state’s Shiroro LGA, which reportedly resulted in the deaths of over 30 people.

He committed to taking additional steps to safeguard the safety of residents in the area.

He vowed that the government and security agencies will intensify efforts to ensure the perpetrators are apprehended.

“We are worried by the nefarious activities of these terrorists.

Desperation has been noticed amongst them as a result of the onslaught of security agents which has made them target unsuspecting rural inhabitants,” he said.

It is now time that full-fledged war should be declared on these unscrupulous elements since they have been proscribed as terrorists.

“We cannot just allow these people to continue with this massacre.”
