The activities of bandits in the northern part of Nigeria has caused a lot of tension within the area. These bandits have destroyed communities and abducted many people in the north.

Few months ago, bandits invaded the Nigerian Defence Academy (NDA) and killed some military officers in the place. This attack made a lot people to ask Buhari's Govt to declare bandits as terrorists within the country.
However, despite the efforts of Nigerian military to end the activities of bandits, a lot of communities are still attacked by these bandits in the northern part of Nigeria.

Recently, a report revealed how some Boko Haram members (jihadists) moved out from their base within the North-East area in order to join criminal gangs in the North-West region (Bandits). The report revealed that the Boko Haram members and bandits engage in various trainings over the handling of weapons and their kidnapping activities.
This information was disclosed by military sources according to a report released by "The Punch".

However, the military sources said that Boko Haram militants are equally training the gangs (known locally as bandits) in the use of anti-aircraft guns and explosives (Including other ammunition).
Nevertheless, many people are wondering if this recent training received by bandits from Boko Haram members will make the federal government to declare them as terrorists within the country.
In my own opinion, I believe that FG should declare these bandits as terrorists since they have started to receive a lot of trainings from Boko Haram members (A well known terrorist group in the world). These bandits may embrace the evil agendas of this Boko Haram terrorist group in Nigeria because they have started to associate with them.

Also, I believe that Buhari's Govt should declare these bandits as terrorists in order to stop their activities before they will become more powerful within the country.
So, do you think Buhari's Govt should declare these bandits as terrorists within the country?.
