El-Rufai begs Buhari to declare Bandits as Terrorists Group

Governor Nasir el-Rufai of Kaduna State, has called on the Federal Government to declare bandits as terrorists group, to allow the Nigerian military deal with them according to international law.

The governor spoke yesterday at the presentation of the Kaduna State Security Incidents Report for the Third Quarter of 2021 in Kaduna saying “we in the Kaduna State Government, have always aligned with the declaration of bandits as insurgents and terrorists.

"We have written letters to the Federal Government since 2017, asking for this declaration because it is the declaration that will allow the Nigerian military to attack and kill these bandits without any major consequences in international law.

So, we support the resolution by the National Assembly and 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.

This is the view of the Kaduna State Government."
