2 Things That Could Happen After The Nigerian Military Arrested Samaila The Bandit Leader

A recent development report from Sahara Reporters has revealed how the Nigerian military has succeeded in capturing a notorious bandit kingpin known as Alhaji Goma Samaila in Kaduna state.

The report has it that the bandit leader has been responsible for series of cattle rustling and other criminal activities in Zamfara and Kaduna along with other North-west states. The development is however coming weeks after Nigeria's Communication Commission (NCC) suspended the telecommunication services in the state with the sole aim of combatting these outlaws.

However, amid the recent positive development on ground, here are two things that may likely happen now that Goma has been arrested by the Nigerian military.

#1: The Nigerian Military may witness more influx of repentant bandits.

Recall that the military has been experiencing a massive influx of repentant bandits and Boko Haram insurgents following the ongoing Operation Hadin Kai (OPHK) in the North-West part of the country. Similarly, considering the recent arrest of the notorious bandit leader, it's obvious that his subordinates or rather criminal syndicates may begin to surrender because whenever a leader of a particular squad is taken down it's either his squad retreats or they surrender indefinitely.

#2: Bandit attacks may reduce temporarily.

Under normal circumstances, it's always believed that whenever the leader of a criminal group is captured that the activities of his gang members or syndicates tend to reduce because the headman in charge is no longer there to command authority as usual.
