The Governor of Kaduna State, Governor Nasir El-Rufai has elaborated on why banditry has continued in the North West region of Nigeria.

He gave an in-depth explanation as he was interviewed by BBC Hausa and this comes after the killing of 18 people by suspected bandits in Birnin Gwari Local Government Area of Kaduna State.

In his submission, he said;

“As a result, every state is fighting in its own way. If we cannot come together for the federal government to provide us with soldiers and police to enter the bush and kill all the bandits, it will be difficult to succeed in the fight against banditry.
