Bullets Can’t Solve Banditry, Adamu Garba

By Damilola Adeyemo

ABUJA – One Former Presidential Aspirant, Adamu Garba, has said that the issue of insecurity in the country cant be fixed by developed countries.

In a statement, Garba said “We can stay here and keep trending #RescueJangebeGirls (but) as long as we refuse to accept that the insecurity in the north is pushed by the high level of injustice by the northern elite against the ordinary people, not even (the) U.S. (United States) can fix this issue with bullets.

“It is on all available records that Boko Haram emerged 90% out of social neglect than ideology. It seems we haven’t learnt a lesson.

“Instead of us to try and correct the problem, we went with state power to fight and kill. Government, yet again think using bullets will solve banditry. Sad.

“The political elites can keep pretending. But as long as the deep level of neglect and injustice has reached a point of betrayal of trust, we may continue to witness security issues to the point where our armed forces will get tired. We must get into the mud and fix our problems.”

According to PUNCH, popular Islamic scholar, Sheikh Ahmad Gumi; Zamfara State Governor, Bello Matawalle; amongst other members of the northern elite pushed for amnesty for bandits as against the military clampdown on the criminals with firepower.

But the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), had said that his regime will deal decisively with bandits and terrorists, ruling out any possibility of granting them amnesty.

    I think what you said was very logical. But, think on this, suppose you typed a catchier title?
    I ain’t saying your information isn’t good, but
    what if you added a post title that makes people desire more?
    I mean Bullets Can't Solve Banditry, Adamu Garba
    – Technocrat Media Nigeria is a little plain. You should
    peek at Yahoo’s home page and see how they write post
    titles to get viewers interested. You might try adding a video or a picture or two to grab people interested about everything’ve got to say.
    Just my opinion, it might bring your blog a little livelier.
