The Nigerian police, army, and other security operatives are lambasted by a former aide to President Goodluck Jonathan, Reno Omokri.
Reno during a brief statement asked how possible it might be for a well-liked Islamic Scholar, Sheikh Abubakar Gumi to locate and take photographs with bandits and herdsmen, whereas the Nigerian Army and Police couldn’t identify their various locations.
Disclosing this on Saturday via his Facebook handle, Omokri said that the military and Police can locate easily the Eastern Security Network, ESN that doesn’t kill but were unsuccessful to locate herdsmen and bandits that are kidnapping, raping, and killing innocent Nigerians. He said it surprises him that the likes of Zamfara State governor, Bello Matawalle, and Aminu Masari of Katsina State had negotiated with bandits, yet Nigerian soldiers and police couldn’t find their locations. Read his statement below:
“How is it that Sheikh Gumi can jump into forests in Zamfara and Niger, and locate the whereabouts of bandits and killer herdsmen, but both the HQ Nigerian Army and Nigerian police can’t locate and exterminate them?“But they will locate and determine ESN that don’t kill. Sheikh Gumi took photos with bandits. Governor Masari held negations with them.
Governor Mutawale holds meetings with them.“It seems everyone has access to bandits and killer herdsmen, except our Army and Police. Those only skills to seek out and kill ESN!”
