Shehu Sani, former Kaduna Central Senator, has accused the Federal Government of paying less attention to banditry in the north while focusing on agitators

Shehu Sani

Shehu Sani accused the Federal Government of placing more priority on Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, and Sunday Igboho, Yoruba Nation agitator.

The former lawmaker was especially unhappy with the state of things and the govts attitude  towards it.

The former lawmaker lamented that banditry was more of a security risk than IPOB and Igboho.

He stressed that the north would be a safe place if the Federal Government fought terrorism with the same energy it used against seperatists.

“The herdsmen and bandits are carrying arms, unleashing terror on innocent citizens, but the agitations of Nnamdi Kanu and Sunday Igboho are working towards breaking Nigeria.

“It is a reality that the government has laid more emphasis on going after separatists than going after terrorists.

“If the government invested a fraction of the energy it spent going after self-determination separatists to fight terrorists, those of us in North East Nigeria would have been saved. Fighting banditry and terrorism are of higher priority in the North East, than going after Nnamdi Kanu or Sunday Igboho,” he told Sun.
