The Senator representing Kaduna Central senatorial district in the Senate stated that the statement is an embarrassment to the government in power.
Naija News recalls Gov Yari on Tuesday in Abuja while speaking with the State House correspondents after his closed-door meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari stated that the bandits in the state are better equipped.
He reacted to the stocking of arms by bandits operating in the state. The Governor said;
“I have told my people that dialogue will no longer take place during my time because I have done that three times, but it did not work.”
“This is in the sense that we know their capacity.”
“For instance, during the first dialogue, they invited some of our team, army, DSS, police, and my chief security officer as well as some representatives of traditional rulers and we have seen what they have.”
“They are in control of the kind of weapons that the security command in Zamfara does not have.”
“In one armoury alone, they have more than 500 AK 47 rifles; we saw it.”
Shehu Sani in his tweet said; “For a Governor from the ruling party & the chair of the Governors forum to have openly revealed that Bandits are better armed than our military, & without a counter from the FG, needs no further comment on the security situation in the country & the shamelessness of the situation.”
