Act Before Bandits, Terrorists Overrun Nigeria – Pyrates Warn Buhari

The National Association of Seadogs (Pyrates Confraternity) has blamed the assaults on army amenities within the nation on the President Muhammadu Buhari-led Federal Government’s determination to pamper terror suspects.

According to the affiliation, the so-called bandits have change into embolden due to the tradition of impunity which the Buhari administration allowed to thrive.

The NAS Capoon, Mr Abiola Owoaje, in assertion stated, “The Federal Government must rethink its war on terrorism.”

The group referred to as on the federal government to get critical in prosecuting terror suspects if it hoped to win the struggle in opposition to terror.

While describing the earlier assault on the National Defence Academy and the latest assault of the Forward Operating Base in Mutumji, Dansadau Local Government Area of Zamfara State as embarrassing, it lamented that terrorism and every kind of atrocious crimes had blossomed below the current administration as a result of the federal government had been trivialising terrorism.

The assertion stated, “It is incongruous that a country ranked third in the Global Index of Terrorism is seemingly unable to interdict the sponsors of terror and negotiating with these criminal elements, and even unconstitutionally granting pardons to self-confessed murderers and ‘reintegrating’ them back into the society through a non-transparent deradicalisation policy.

“President Buhari as the Commander-in-Chief leading the security agencies must do more to convince Nigerians on the sincerity of his government’s fight against terrorism. We reiterate that the government should rethink its strategies to combat terror by ceasing all manner of negotiations with criminal elements in the northeast and northwest. The recent disclosures by Governors Matawalle and Masari on the failed negotiation with bandits show that from the onset, negotiating with bandits was a self-defeatist strategy.”

“To this end, the hundreds of terror suspects in various detention centres should be screened and those found culpable of mass murder and other crimes should be put on trial immediately. Also the 400 Bureau De Change (BDC) operators, that the office of the Attorney-General, Mr Abubakar Malami announced in May 2021 of being implicated as sponsors and financers of terrorism should be immediately put on trial. A similar trial and conviction of six Nigerian bureau de change operators for sponsoring terrorism in United Arab Emirate in November 2020 is a pointer to the Nigerian government on how not to pamper terror suspects.

“Finally, and for the umpteenth time, we demand that the federal government and our security agencies get serious with intelligence gathering to weed out internal collaborators, identify sponsors of terror, cut off their sources of funding, supplies and punish severely those found guilty. Nigerians are tired of the excuses; President Buhari should act now before terrorists overrun his government and our country.”
