The Governor of Kaduna State, Malam Nasir El-Rufai has condemned the Federal Government’s initiative of absorbing so-called repentant bandits and terrorists back into the society.
El-Rufai said he doesn’t believe people who planned to terrorise the country, people who bought weapons and strategised to loot both the citizens and the government deserve death and punishment, not forgiveness.
The Governor said this after receiving the annual security report for 2021, at the Government House, Kaduna on Tuesday.
He called on the Federal Government to establish a theatre centre in the North East, so as to hell checkmate insurgency.
According to El-Rufai, “The creation of such a Theatre Command will enable holistic approach to counter-insurgent operations across the six affected states and the enhanced coordination of the resources of the armed forces, the police, the SSS, our respective state vigilance Services, hunters and other local volunteers to fight the insurgents.”
