Why Court Proscription Of Bandits As Terrorists Is The Beginning Of An End To Banditry In Nigeria (A MUST READ)

Published

on

Bandits across Nigeria recently received another status from the Federal High court in Abuja. They are now tagged, terrorist groups.

This update followed incessant attacks from the bandits which have been going on for several years now.

However, a popular and controversial Islamic scholar who has always been speaking on behalf of these bandits, Sheikh Ahmad Gumi reacted that the proscription of the bandits is not going to change anything. He said that the declaration was just a mere decision taken for political expediency.

Gumi also believed that the Federal Government has succumbed to media blackmail by a section of the country.

He maintained that bandits have been facing the same treatment as terrorists before they were proscribed by the court.

The Mistake In Gumi’s Statement And Understanding Of The Proscription

Gumi failed to understand some key points in regard to what will change about military operations against bandits after they were proscribed by the Federal High court.

Before this time, the Nigerian Military has been restricted from using certain weapons against these bandits because of the international agreement between the United States of America and Nigeria.

One of such weapons is the Tucano A-29 Fighter jet. Nigeria has 12 of these war machines and they have been using them only on Boko Haram.

As reported by The PUNCH, the military was restricted from deploying the Tucano planes to crush the bandits in the North-West because the agreement signed with the United States was that the aircraft, bought from the US, would be deployed against terrorists and not bandits.

Now that these bandits have been proscribed by law, the military can deploy whatever weapons in its armoury against bandits without incurring any sanctions.

This is what Gumi failed to understand when he said nothing is going to change.

Many things are going to change because as it stands now, bandits may start suffering huge losses from the sophisticated weapons used by the military against them.
