El-Rufai makes powerful suggestion to FG on banditry, says BOMB ALL FORESTS in the North, wipe bandits out now!

bomb forests in north

Governor of Kaduna State, Nasir El-Rufai, has suggested that forests in the North should be bombed to aid the fight against banditry.

This, he said, would help to wipe out bandits, while speaking on Arise TV on Monday.

He also called for more investment in security personnel, technology, and military equipment.

The governor said, “These bandits operate in the periphery because their hiding place is in the forest. It’s a major problem. The security agencies are doing their best but they are overstretched.

“The reality is we don’t have enough boots on the ground to address the myriad of security challenges that we face, and these security challenges are asymmetric, widespread, and there’s no part of Nigeria that doesn’t have one security problem or the other.

“Ramp up the number of boots and more technology and more investment in armament and wipe these guys once 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.”
