Governor of Kaduna State, Mallam Nasir El-Rufai, on Tuesday, said the only way to deal with bandits and make schools safe is to eliminate all the bandits.
El-Rufai, in the early days of his governorship of Kaduna, was reported to have given monetary compensation to some Fulani in and out of Nigeria for their rustled cattle.
At a panel discussion at the ongoing Financing Safe Schools in Nigeria conference at the Transcorp Hilton Hotel, Abuja said the Air Force should just shell the forests where bandits are hiding.
“Nobody living in the forest is innocent and we must kill them all.
“The Chief of Air Staff has been doing well and this has led to a reduction in the activities of bandits in recent times,” he declared.
He advocated the purchase of drones in addition to aircraft in the fight against insecurity.
The governor explained that another way to discourage banditry is to stop negotiating with them and paying the ransom.
“People ask if my child was kidnapped and I say that I won’t pay, it is a personal decision, which we do not all support.
“So the only way to stop banditry is to kill them all!” (Nigerian Tribune)
