Former Senator representing Kaduna Central, Shehu Sani, has urged the Federal Government to declare bandits as federal civil servants since it has failed to view them as terrorists.
Sani said this on his Twitter handle while lamenting the killing of Christian and Muslim worshippers in their religious houses by bandits.
He tweeted, “They [bandits] killed Muslim worshippers in their mosques in Niger and Katsina states; they killed Christians in their Churches in Kaduna State; if the government doesn’t want to declare them terrorists, it should declare them federal civil servants.”
Ugamatv had earlier reported that some gunmen suspected to be bandits invaded Baptist Church, Kakau Daji in Chikun Local Government Area of Kaduna State, killing two while scores were said to be abducted.
Chairman of the state chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria, Rev. Joseph Hayab, while reacting to the incident, said the attack was “another sad story of how deteriorating our insecurity has become.”
Hayab added, “Citizens are being killed like chickens with only press statements as consolation.
“These evil people have troubled us for too long.
