Shehu Sani, a human rights campaigner and former Kaduna Central Senator, has described the recent execution of 13 police officers in Zamfara State by armed bandits as “cruel.
Shehu Sani further stated that such illicit actions will continue till some recognized individuals are apprehended.
In response to the terrible murder of 13 police officers and the injuring of seven others in the state by armed bandits, the former politician spoke out.
According to Ng Times, State Governor Bello Matawalle said in a statement on Sunday that the occurrence in Kurar Mota community in Bungudu Local Government Area of Zamfara State surprised and devastated him.
Senator Sani, in a tweet on Monday in response to the heinous occurrence, asked for the arrest of known bandit leaders such as Karami, Turji, and Dogo Gide in order to stem the flow of banditry in the country.
He wrote: “The Killing of 13 Policemen in Zamfara by Bandits is another horrific and tragic act of cruelty. Until the law catches up with the notorious gang leaders like Karami, Turji, and Dogo Gide, there will be no end in sight to these atrocities. This is where the nation’s might is needed.”
Meanwhile, Nigerian military troops acting under Operation Hadin Kai have apprehended Mahamet Alkori, a known logistical supplier for ISWAP-Boko Haram insurgents.
Alkori is said to sneak into town on market days to buy food for the terrorists at their base in Borno State’s Sambisa Forest.
However, his luck ran out when he was detained in Sumi Village, a semi-settlement in the Kaga Local Government Area of Borno State, while attempting to repair his pickup van during one of his journeys.
The troops of the 154 Taskforce Battalion, led by Major Daniel Chiwar, the Acting Commander, pursued him and apprehended him.
His father was arrested for a similar offense roughly a year ago, according to reports.
