Following yet another bandit attack in Kaduna state which claimed 5 lives, Nasir El-Rufai, Kaduna state governor, says anyone involved in banditry does not deserve to live.
He said any bandit operating in his state is “most likely going to end up dead”.
The governor made this statement on Sunday while featuring on Politics Today, a Channels Television programme.
He said: “I think that the bandits and their leaders decided to collectively target Kaduna state because of the position we have taken that we will not negotiate with them, that we will not give them a penny of taxpayers’ money.”
“And whoever comes to Kaduna for the purpose of banditry or kidnapping is most likely going to end up dead.
“We believe that the solution to this problem is to intensify military operations from the air or the ground and wipe all of them out. We do not think any bandit deserves to live.”
