FG lacks the courage to declare bandits as terrorists —Ohanaeze

Ohanaeze- LagosPost.ng

Igbo socio-cultural group, Ohanaeze, says the Federal Government does not have the willpower to declare bandits as terrorists.

LagosPost earlier reported that Malami said his office is in the process of announcing the court judgment.

Speaking during an interview on the Nigeria Television Authority (NTA) on Tuesday, Malami disclosed that the process would be concluded in a matter of days.

The minister asserted that the government wants to ensure that the tagging of bandits as terrorists is in line with international best practices.

In reaction to this, Ohanaeze spokesman, Alex Ogbonnia, said the excuse given by the minister is baseless and untenable.

The Igbo group called on the Muhammadu Buhari government to treat the bandits as terrorists and stop condoning their heinous activities, treating it with levity.

It added that until the government proscribed the bandits, they will continue with their killings and destructions in the North.

He said, “We condemn that bandits have not been declared terrorists which they are. And as long as they are not called bandits and treated as such, they will continue with their killings and destructions.

“As long as the Federal Government lacks the willpower to declare them terrorists, they will continue to do what they are doing, killing the people.”
