Kaduna Attacks: Eliminates All The People ln The Forest – El Rufai
Nasir El-Rufa’i, the governor of Kaduna State, has called for a huge crackdown on all individuals who are unlawfully occupying the forest, including children.
He said that this move would help to alleviate the present level of insecurity that is afflicting the nation.
The governor made the appeal to action at a stakeholders meeting in Giwa, Kaduna State, where bandits have been raiding villages for the last five days, resulting in the deaths or kidnappings of a number of people, including children.
“We have been pressing for the past two years for the military from the air and the ground to bomb these forests while soldiers on the ground kill all those that escape the bomb.
“I do not believe that there is any innocent person in the forest.
“It is my intention to see Mr President to reiterate this and to also ask that a military theatre command headquarters be established for the Northwest geo-political zone.’’
He said that the degree of insecurity in the Northwest is higher than the level of insecurity faced by residents in the Northeast.
He went on to say that farming has become difficult as a result of the continual attacks by terrorist groups.
He said: “It is time for the Nigeria Air Force and Nigerian Army to bomb the terrorists out of existence.
“With the declaration by the Federal High Court that these bandits are terrorists, there is need for security agencies to take extreme actions to terminate these bandits.’’
