The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, has claimed that bandits and terrorists are not treated softly by the government.

 

He made this known while appearing at a FRCN programme on Thursday.

 

According to him, the government is not softer on bandits and terrorists than separatists.

 

He said this amid complaints that the Federal Government is hadling terrorists and bandits with gloves hand while crushing members of the Indigenous People of Biafra and Yoruba Nation agitators.

 

The minister said, “The treatment of the bandit and terrorist is one and the same. Wether you’re a terrorist or a bandit, you’re a criminal.

 

“The truth of the matter is that the military does not make any distinction in the ferocious attacks they’re unleashing on the terrorist whether they’re from the Northwest, South East or they’re from the North East.


“It is an attempt to politicize the approach of the Federal Government in tackling banditry…The Federal Government is not relenting in the attacks from the military that’s why the newly acquired platforms such as the Super Tucano(as of today we have 10 of them) has changed the equation.

 

“As I told you earlier, today wether terrorists or bandits, they’re in disarray. Thousands of terrorists have surrendered because of the superior power of the military, and because of the combined efforts of the States and Federal Governments, most of the bandits today are either hungry or isolated in the forest but we are not relenting.

 

“It is a disservice and disincentive to the military to say that terrorists and bandits from the North East and North West are being treated with soft gloves while the separatists and other criminals from other parts of the country are not treated like that. I think it is very unfair.

 

“It is a fallacy, misinformation and #fakenews all rolled into one to say that the Government is softer on bandits and insurgents than on the separatist and other criminals in other part of the country.

 

“It is very unfair to say so.

As far as Government is concerned, a criminal is a criminal, nomenclature not withstanding. Wether you call him a bandit or call him a terrorist.”
