Bandit Terrorist Leader Reveals Govt Benefit From Terrorism

In a recent interview, the bandit boss Abu Sanni claimed that everyone benefits from insecurity, even the government.

Banditry has turned into a business, according to Sanni, who revealed this during an interview with BBC Africa Eye in a forest in Zamfara State.

The Government Girls Science Secondary School in Jangebe, Zamfara, had 300 schoolgirls kidnapped with the assistance of the bandit kingpin.

Remember that on February 27, 2021, bandits abducted schoolgirls in Jangebe, Talata-Mafara LGA, Zamfara. The abductors eventually released the schoolgirls after negotiating with the authorities.

Speaking on the kidnapping of the schoolgirls, Sanni claimed that it happened as retaliation for the government sending the military to look for them.

Sanni claims that his group asked the authorities for N300 million, but they only received N60 million in exchange for releasing the schoolgirls.

He said, “When the rainy season ended, they sent the military after us. We decided to show the government they should not interfere with our problems. We went to Jangebe and took the students. We wanted to get the government angry.

Sanni said, “Because it has become a business. Everyone wants money. That is why things are deteriorating, from the top to the bottom.

“They say when there is insecurity, the government gets the money. Everyone is benefitting. We also get money. Though for our money, blood is split, so it continues.”
