In the wake of the activities of bandits in Nigeria especially the North Western part of the country in which Some state governors in the North including Governor Aminu Masari of Katsina State, and his counterpart in Zamfara State, Bello Matawalle have been negotiating with bandits as part of efforts to tackle insecurity but their action, the Northern Youth under the umbrella of Arewa has called such move as foolishness.
It is not only foolishness but also counter-productive. It is not the best approach. This is very shameful. It is even embarrassing that these governors are making fanfare of their negotiation with bandits.
They invite television stations and other media organisations to cover the event. What are they celebrating? Celebrating criminality? This is a big shame. Instead of negotiating with bandits, the governors should have provided police with the necessary logistics and equipment which help the police to tackle crime.
The governors should stop it, and take the right step which is for them to equip the police.
