Nasir El-Rufai, the Governor of Kaduna State, expressed his sadness and frustration over the recent train attack by bandits.

El-Rufai told Punch that the Nigerian military knows where the bandits are hiding but has refused to bomb them.

We know what they (terrorists) are planning. We get the reports. The problem is for the agencies to take action. Don’t wait until they attack before you respond. The Army should go after their enclaves to wipe them out. Let the Air Force bomb them.

Before, they were categorised as bandits and if you bombed them, you would have issues with human rights organisations and international criminal courts and so on. But, now that they have been declared terrorists by the court, they can be legally killed without any consequences from international human rights organisations.

Kaduna is currently in a ‘State of War,’ he said.

We know where their camps are, we know where they are; the SSS have their phone numbers, they listen to them, and they give me the report. We know what they are planning. We shouldn’t be waiting for them to attack; why can’t we go after them?”.

On Monday, March 28, 2022, a deadly train attack occurred, resulting in several deaths and kidnappings. The incident has been widely condemned, with many Nigerians calling for a more robust security response.
