Buhari is not Pampering Bandits- Lai Mohammed

Nigeria’s Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed has denied claims that his Principal, Muhammadu Buhari is cuddling criminals.

Mr. Mohammed who recently got a chieftaincy title from Kebbi Traditional Council, described as misleading the claims that Buhari pampers terrorists he has refused to proscribe, while going hard on separatists like Nnamdi Kanu and Sunday Igboho.

Speaking on the Nigeria Television Authority, NTA, program, Good Morning Nigeria, Mohammed insisted that bandits are criminals with no basis on religion or ideology.

According to Mohammed: “I think we have been dancing around nomenclature, a criminal is a criminal whether it is a bandit or terrorist, and the same measure is being meted out to them.

Despite the fact that the wel known Islamic Cleric, Sheikh Ahmad Gumi openly campaigns for the amnesty and welfare of these terrorists they have chosen to call bandits, the Buhari-led administration has failed to swing into action, preferring to defend their clearly dubious stands.

“That is why we find it ridiculous, the accusation that the federal Government is softer on bandits than the separatists and other criminals.

Mr. Lai went on to call those pointing out this maladministration as being divisive.

“This is a fallacy, a fake news, and misinformation all into one, and this is the kind of divisive rhetoric being promoted by some naysayers.’’
