OPINION: Why El-Rufai's Suggestion Might Be The Way To End Banditry In Nigeria

As the activities of bandits continue to increase on a daily basis, a lot of concerned Nigerians have been suggesting ways to tackle the menace and the recent person to do so is the Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai.

According to a publication by Vanguard, the Governor called on the Federal Government to declare bandits as terrorists. Apart from the fact that they (bandits) display all the characteristic of a terrorist group, the declaration would enable the Nigerian Armed Forces go full force on them without thinking twice.

He said: “We have written letters to the Federal Government since 2017, asking for this declaration because it is the declaration that will allow the Nigerian military to attack and kill these bandits without any major consequences in international law”.

In my own opinion, the Federal Government, should as a matter of urgency, accept and implement El-Rufai's suggestion if we truly want to win this fight.

For a group of people that go about kidnapping and destabilizing the peace of the society, I seriously don't know why it's like taking forever before they're addressed for who they really are.

What do you think about this?
