If the government doesn't want to pay bandits, here is a strategy to easily arrest them -Sen Shehu

Since banditry has become the order of the day, kidnappings and terror is almost becoming a culture in some parts of Nigeria. The government's attempt to stop the criminals from growing bigger wings seems unfruitful, bandits now appear to be stronger and more dominant. It can be recalled that the government has allegedly paid some heavy random for some kidnapped individuals before(which was highly criticised) and has also tried to convince the criminals through Sheikh Gumi to lay their arms. The government appears to be in a very difficult situation. In an attempt to propose a solution to this nightmare, Sen Shehu Sani has suggested what the government should do if it doesn't want to negotiate with bandits or pay ransoms anymore!

The former senator tweeted, "If the Government does not want to negotiate with the Bandits or pay Ransoms to them, it MUST device ways of engaging and paying Informants from among them. Infiltration is the key." Shehu believes in the power of money. He feels if the government stakes money for information on these criminals, then something positive could come out of it!

Reacting to his idea, many people feel it's a good proposition that should be forwarded to the house of assembly. Read reactions below:

I suspect that this suggestion could be effective if the government gets serious about it. Offer a price for a piece of information that can lead to these criminals, including Boko Haram, so that we settle this issue once and for all! Guys, what's your thoughts on Shehu's suggestion?
