    Declare bandits federal civil servants, Shehu Sani urges govt

    Former Senator representing Kaduna Central, Shehu Sani, has urged government to declare bandits as federal civil servants since it has failed to view them as terrorists.

    Sani said this on Twitter while lamenting the killing of Christian and Muslim worshippers in their religious houses by bandits.

    He tweeted, “They [bandits] killed Muslim worshipers in their mosques in Niger and Katsina State; they killed Christians in their Churches in Kaduna State; if the Government doesn’t want to declare them terrorists, it should declare them federal civil servants.”

    The PUNCH had earlier reported that some gunmen suspected to be bandits invaded Baptist Church, Kakau Daji in Chikun Local Government Area of Kaduna State, killing two while scores were said to be abducted.

    Chairman of the state chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria, Rev. Joseph Hayab while reacting to the incident, said the attack was “another sad story of how deteriorating our insecurity has become.”
    Hayab added, “Citizens are being killed like chickens with only press statements as consolation.

    “These evil people have troubled us for too long.

    “I condole the families of the Baptist denomination and Kaduna Christians for this loss and urge our security agencies to separate war against enemies of Nigerians from politics. No one knows who will be the next target.”

    Sani, who reacted to the incident in an earlier tweet, described as useless the suspension of telecommunication services in the North which was meant to tackle the bandits.

    He said, “Yesterday’s attacks on the Baptist Church Kakau Daji, Kaduna State by terrorists, the killing of some worshippers and the abductions of scores of others is tragic and unfortunate. The suspension of the telecom services in the North is useless.”
