The Federal Government has said most of the bandits and criminal herdsmen terrorising the country are not Nigerians. Minister of Information, Lai Mohammed said.
“What we find out today is that a lot of criminalities have been introduced through the herdsmen and trans-human,’’ he said. The minister added that criminal herdsmen and bandits have access to sophisticated weapons. He cited the proliferation and smuggling of small arms and light weapons across the sub-region. “The issue of smuggling of small and light arms is very serious and it has to do with border control”, Mohammed said.
