The Governor of Kaduna State, Nasir El- rufai, said he was sorry and angry about the recent train attack by bandits.
According to Punch, El- Rufai stated that the Nigerian military is aware of the bandits’ whereabouts but has declined to bomb their stronghold.
” We have enough intelligence for us to take action, ” the angry politician stated of the incident.
The Air Force does enough ISR (Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance), and the DSS has informants all around. ” ” We know what they’ re preparing (terrorists) for. ” The reports are delivered to us. The issue is that the agencies are unable to act. Don’ t wait for them to assault you before responding. The army should attack their enclaves and annihilate them. Allow the air force to drop bombs on them. ”
” Before, they were categorised as bandits and if you bombed them, you would have issues with human rights organisations and international criminal courts and so on. But, now that they have been declared terrorists by the court, they can be legally killed without any consequences from international human rights organisations. ”
Kaduna is currently in a ” state of war, ” according to him.
” We know where their camps are, we know where they are; the SSS have their phone numbers, they listen to them, and they give me the report. We know what they are planning. We shouldn’ t be waiting for them to attack; why can’ t we go after them? ” .
On Monday, a devastating train attack happened, resulting in multiple deaths and kidnappings. Many Nigerians have denounced the development, and many have called for a stronger security reaction.
