How Masari's Recent Remarks On Indiscriminate Release Of Bandits Contradicted Garba's Earlier Claims

Following the rapid growth of banditry and insecurity in the Northern part of Nigeria which has become a matter of major concern lately, the able governor of Katsina State, Sir Aminu Bello Masari has come out to decry the indiscriminate release of bandits and criminals by courts.

The governor in a recent publication from Daily Post strictly bemoaned the gesture while appealing to the NBA (Nigerian Bar Association), to implore its members who he claimed are in the habit of supporting criminalities by granting bails to bandits to desist from engaging in compromise, as these bandits and suspected criminals tend to go back to their old ways after being granted bail.

In the light of this development, we may deem it necessary and appropriate to recall how the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu had come out barely two months ago amid the issue of banditry ravaging the North to state that the President Buhari-led government had done worse things to bandits more than it has done to the separatist group in the Southeast.

Garba made it clear that the Federal government had already declared that any arms-wielding, AK-47 bandits should be shot on sight by the Nigerian military.

Now, putting both developments into consideration, you may want to agree with me that Governor Masari's recent statement that bandits are being granted bail indiscriminately has successfully contradicted Garba's earlier claims, because if these bandits are automatically shot on sight as ordered by the FG then there wouldn't be any bandit to take to a court of law for judgment, talk more of them getting released.
