“We are going to follow up with a letter of support, for the Federal Government to declare these bandits and insurgents as terrorists so that they will be fair game for our military.”
While saying that “We have written letters to the Federal Government since 2017, asking for this declaration.” he urged the Federal Government to proscribe bandits as terrorists.
He then noted that “We in the Kaduna State Government, have always aligned with the declaration of bandits as insurgents and terrorists.”
