Anthony Ehilebo, the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Head of New Media, has said southern politicians could not order the military to wipe out banditry, because they would be accused of attempting genocide.
He stated this while speaking with DAILY POST.
the Abuja-based lawyer 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.
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.”
