Governor Rules Out Negotiations With Bandits




Kogi State governor, Yahaya Bello, has reacted to the call for the government of President Muhammadu Buhari to negotiate with bandits.

Speaking on the issue, Governor Bello,  stated that anybody carrying guns against the state should be considered as a criminal and should be dealt with decisively.

According to Governor Bello, there is a difference between banditry and the agitation in the Nigeria Delta.

Bello said: “It depends on how you look at it, I will differentiate categorically between the agitation in the down south or south-south and the issue of banditry.

“I don’t subscribe to the fact that because you’re idle then you take to crimes or criminality, there are a lot of jobs to be done, if you can’t do anything, go and farm. Crime is not an excuse for joblessness.”

The governor said criminals should be made to face justice in order to provide succor for lawful abiding citizens.
