Taliban: Why bandits can take over Nigerian government – Bamgbose
National Coordinator, Concerned Advocates for Good Governance, Olusegun Bamgbose, Esq has warned that bandits could as well take over Nigerian government in similar fashion to what Taliban perfected in Afghanistan.
WITHINNIGERIA had reported that Taliban fighters entered the city of Kabul on Sunday, hijacked power, forcing President Mohammad Ashraf Ghani to flee the country.
Bamgbose explained that the whole scenario began with a steady trickle of military defeats; first, the Afghan government was ceded to the Taliban in provincial towns and cities.
He added that bigger cities and regional capitals began to fall and finally, on Sunday the Taliban entered Kabul.
According to DAILY POST, Bamgbose said, “The truth is that bandits in Nigeria, could as well achieve the same feat in Nigeria.”
“This may seem laughable and unbelievable but it can happen in Nigeria. It is on record that bandits are occupying some local governments in Nigeria. This means with time they can take over a State in Nigeria.
“In essence, the Federal Government should urgently deal decisively with the bandits before they will destroy Nigeria. The Taliban take over could equally motivate the bandits to one-day attempt to take over Aso Rock.
“This is not a false alarm, but a timely warning. Most of the bandits may not be Nigerians and one should not doubt the possibility of them being sponsored by some foreign countries.
“Taliban were being sponsored. The best thing to do in the circumstances will be to root out the bandits before they will turn out to be another Taliban in Nigeria. To be forewarned is to be before armed.”
