The All Progressives Congress (APC) has alleged that a Nigerian governor from a northwest state is behind the attacks by bandits in the region.
The spokesperson for the party, Yekini Nabena made the accusation in a statement on Thursday, December 17, in Abuja, Vanguard reported.
Nabena, however, stopped short of mentioning the name of the governor being accused of the violent acts. According to the APC chieftain, he decided not to mention the name of the governor due to security reasons.
He said: “Our security agencies have intelligence reports linking one of the Northwest governors of colluding and sponsoring the violent and criminal activities of bandits in the zone.
“I won’t give details because of the sensitive and security nature of the issue. However, relevant security agencies must as a matter of urgency investigate the report and determine its veracity. Human life is not what we should play political chess games with.”
The Tribune reported that the APC spokesperson also accused the PDP of attempting to make political gains over insecurity in the country.
As at the time of filing in this report, the PDP had not responded to the accusation made by the APC chieftain.
Meanwhile, Governor Abdullahi Ganduje has said Boko Haram insurgents now exploit the Almajiri system to recruit fighters. He made the claim on Tuesday, December 15, at a book launch in Abuja, Daily Trust reported.
