Anthony Ehilebo, the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Head of New Media, has suggested that the bandits’ attack on a train between Katari and Rijani train station along the Kaduna-Abuja route, could have been a ploy to prevent southern politicians from participating in national politics.
He stated this while speaking with DAILY POST.
the Abuja-based lawyer said southern politicians could not order the military to wipe out banditry, because they would be accused of attempting genocide.
According to him: “I feel this attack is a ploy to keep the southern politicians away from the field of national politics because nobody wants to inherit such a mess.
“A southern politician can’t effectively order the Nigeria Police or Nigerian Army to wipe out these guys (bandits); no southern politician can do it; if he tries it, they would say he is committing genocide.
“But if Buhari, a former General who we expect by now to have created even a special military division to wipe out all these guys, it’s okay. What do they need, they need just bikes, off-road vehicles, and they would enter these bushes to do the needful.”
