Despite rampant attacks, Nigeria’s police minister says bandits have been degraded
Honorable minister of police affairs, Muhammad Dingyadi has stated that bandits have been degraded despite wreaking havoc in communities across the north-west.
This statement was made by the police minister while speaking with state house correspondents after a national security council meeting at Aso Rock on Tuesday.
This is coming hours after unknown gunmen reportedly killed a traditional ruler in Kaduna.
Dingyadi said what bandits are relying on is hit-and-run tactics.
“These bandits have already been degraded, so there is no way they resuscitate themselves and take over,” he said.
“I think they have already been degraded, what they are doing is just hit-and-run kind of tactics. So, we don’t see any sign of them coming to take over or overpower, I think they have been well degraded and they are just trying to show their presence in a very cowardice manner.”
Asked when to expect improved security in the country, Dingyadi said: “Let me say that in whatever one does, you must have a timeline, you must have your targets and you must work towards achieving those targets. We have our timelines, we have our targets and we are working towards achieving those targets.”
