Shehu Sani, former Kaduna Central Senator, Sunday, has warned President Bola Ahmed Tinubuâ€™s government and State governors against dialoguing with bandits in the country.
The socio-political commentator opined via Twitter that the bandits are not like Boko Haram which murder people under the guise of religion and political motives, so trying to have a conversation with the bandits would fail for three reasons.
According to him, the bandits are driven by their need for extortion through atrocious blackmail and cold-blooded murder of innocent citizens.
â€œDialogue with Bandits will not work because of these three reasons; they are not an armed movement founded for the pursuit of any religious, ethnic or political causes, other than extortion by atrocious blackmail, abductions and cold-blooded murder of innocent citizens.
â€œTwo, they are not united under a single leadership but operate in clusters and criminal gangs; three, their motivation is money; they kill and abduct for money.
â€œBandits are unlike Iswap and Boko elements whose acts of abduction, terrorist attacks and slaughter of innocent citizens is done under the guise of religion.
â€œDialogue with Bandits is a waste of time. Those Governors who tried it later regretted it,” the analyst tweeted.
