Shehu Sani, former Kaduna lawmaker has reacted to a statement by the Minister of Defence, Bashir Magashi, advising Nigerians to defend themselves against bandits.
The retired General while speaking on insecurity and bandits’ attacks in some parts of Nigeria, advised Nigerians not to be cowards, including that bandits sometimes possessed few rounds of ammunition.
He told citizens to stay alert at all times and defend themselves.
Reacting to the Minister’s statement, Sani told Magashi to provide Nigerians with enabling tools so as not to be cowards when bandits attack.
On his Twitter page, the former Kaduna lawmaker wrote: “If the Defence Minister is prescribing self-defence, his Ministry should provide Nigerians with the ‘enabling tools’ or formally allow them to privately source for it so that there shall be ‘cowards’ no more on this beleaguered and bewildering land.”
