Those Who Brought Bandits From Mali To Fight Goodluck Jonathan Should Deal With Them - Reno Omokri

Following the abduction of over 300 female students of an all-female public school in Zamfara State, the Government Girls Secondary School, Jangebe in the Talata-Mafara Local Government Area of Zamfara State by gunmen suspected to be bandits, a human rights activist has reacted to the abduction, saying those who brought the bandits from Mali should deal with them.

You would recall that suspected armed bandits had invaded the school in the early hours of Friday, abducting over 300 student of the school in another brazen attack, which is reminisce the previous two mass abductions of students from school. The latest abduction has once again thrown the country into panic mode as security operatives come together to facilitate the rescue of the abducted schoolgirls.

However, having served under the administration of former Nigerian President, Dr Goodluck Jonathan, Mr Reno Omokri who has always criticised the administration of the incumbent president, Major General Muhammadu Buhari said even though Zamfara State pioneered the idea of granting concept to bandits, the newly abducted students would not have been abducted if the idea of granting amnesty to bandits really works.

While reacting on his verified Twitter handle, he had tweeted saying: "Zamfara pioneered amnesty for bandits. If amnesty works, the #JangebeGirls would never have been abducted. The fact of their abduction is proof that amnesty for bandits does not work. Those who brought them from Mali to fight @GEJonathan should deal with them."

See the tweet below:

Readers would recall that just few months earlier, armed bandits had also stormed an all-male Government Science School in Kankara, Katsina State, abducting scores of students. Another of such mass abduction took place in Niger State just few days back as about 27 students of a government-owned school were also abducted alongside some workers in the school.

Dear readers, is it safe to say the increased activities of bandits in Nigeria is attributable to their influx from Mali as suggested by Reno Omokri?
