FG, Military Reaping From Northwest’s Insecurity – Bandits’ Kingpin

The federal government, security chiefs, military personnel and some highly placed individuals have been accused of making earnings from the incessant banditry activities in the northwest and other places.

The allegation was brought forward by a bandits’ kingpin, Bello Turji, saying these set of people make huge amounts of money from such atrocities.

In a telephone interview with an online Hausa television, Gusau alleged that the government is unwilling to end the persisting insecurity that has ravaged a large part of the country, adding that the FG is fooling gullible citizens.

“I am ready for peace or war depending on which one the government wants. It is the government that will decide which one it wants, whether peace or war”, he lamented.

Quoting him, Gusau said he entered a peace accord with the government in August 2022.

Giving details of the agreement with the FG, he disclosed that he accepted the ceasefire order of the government “but within a month, precisely on the 18th of September 2022, my house at Fakai village in Shinkafi Local Government Area of Zamfara State was attacked by the Nigeria Air Force operatives.

“Twelve people including my relatives died in the Air Force attack at my Fakai residence, even after the peace accord signed by both parties”

The bandits’ kingpin lamented that since the peace accord between him and the government was reached, people in the axis have been living very peacefully, doing their legitimate endeavours including farming activities undisturbed, saying that the community members relate with his gang members very well.

Turji further lamented that he was sabotaged by the federal government which allowed the military operatives to bombard his residence and killed innocent people, saying the government claims to be looking for peace but doesn’t love peace but only pretending.

“By bombing my residence and killing twelve innocent people, the federal government is provoking me to drop the peace accord which I willingly signed.”

According to him, the security operatives would be killing innocent and vulnerable people, destroying their properties and they would be holding him responsible for the attacks he doesn’t know about, saying that since he signed the peace accord, his gang members had never attacked anybody, if not after the military attack on his residence.

He continued, “I always feel embarrassed whenever my name is mentioned in one attack or the other even when the attacks were carried out by another bandits’ leader which I don’t even know, they would associate me with such attacks.

“I want to tell the general public that the government they think is protecting them is their number one enemy. If the government want to end insecurity, it would do so but what the military personnel, security chiefs and other individuals are gaining from banditry can never allow them to end insecurity, especially in the north.”
