Bandits can take over power from Nigerian govt – Buba Galadima warns
Popular politician, Buba Galadima says the Federal Government has been treating the issue of banditry with “kid gloves”.
This, he said, has emboldened the bandits to carry out ceaseless attacks.
Galadima warned that if the bandits became more coordinated, they could take over the Nigerian government.
He said it was high time Nigeria’s security forces went on the offensive rather than waiting to react whenever bandits and other criminals struck.
“The Federal government treats this matter with kid gloves. If bandits are well-coordinated, they can take over the government of Nigeria.
“So this is a serious matter which government should give due consideration and the rate it’s going, this thing may consume all of us.
“You can see that the former set of Service Chiefs that just left the office lacked coordination, and this allowed this issue to flourish. Even now, if the Service Chiefs do not come together, the problem will not go away.
These bandits, we are told, move in batches of 100 to 200 motorcycles in the night. What stops the Air Force from bombing them, but you cannot do that If you do not take over the territory.
“In the case of this war in Nigeria, all the security forces are on the defence. It’s when they are attacked that they react,” Galadima told Daily Post.
