Governor Nasir El-Rufai has shared what he thinks ought to be performed within the combat towards banditry within the nation.
The Kaduna state Governor stated safety operatives ought to carpet-bomb forests the place bandits are, because the bushes could be replanted later.
El-Rufai who spoke in an interview on Arise TV on Monday January 3, blamed the extended incapability of safety operatives to curb banditry within the northwest area to a “lack of enough boots on the ground”.
He said that funding in safety personnel, know-how and army gear will see bandits worn out “once and for all”.
The Governor stated;
“These bandits function within the periphery as a result of their hiding place is within the forest. It’s a serious downside. The safety companies are doing their finest however they’re overstretched.
“The actuality is we don’t have sufficient boots on the bottom to handle the myriad of safety challenges that we face, and these safety challenges are uneven, widespread, and there’s no a part of Nigeria that doesn’t have one safety downside or the opposite.
“Ramp up the variety of boots and extra know-how and extra funding in armament and wipe these guys as soon as and for all.
“I’ve always believed that, you know, we should carpet-bomb the forests; we can replant the trees after. Let’s carpet-bomb the forests and bomb all of them. There will be collateral damage, but it’s better to wipe them out and get people back to our communities so that agriculture and rural economics can pick up.”
