Informants most dangerous people in banditry – Public commentator
A public commentator, Alhaji Ahmed Bakare has lamented that informants are the most dangerous people in the game of banditry not the bandits, saying that any informant caught deserves no mercy at all.
Speaking exclusively with Press in Gusau, Zamfara State capital, the public commentator said the informants live with people, eat and discuss with people in the same environment without being suspected.
“The informants are not only the common man, there may be military men, security operatives even traditional rulers in the system,” he lamented.
According to him, there are people sabotaging all the efforts of the government, stressing that the government cannot succeed until it declares a total war against the informants in the state as they are the backbone of the bandits.
“These informants are not faraway from their communities but insiders, otherwise how come the bandits know who have what and how much someone has in his house?”
Continuing, Alhaji Bakare noted that if the military or security operatives decide to go on patrol, before they leave, the bandits must have known because they have informants even in the military and security agencies.
Speaking further, the public commentator said the 13 mobile policemen that were killed recently in Zamfara State could be linked to the handiwork of informants within the police circles.
“As the informants gave the bandits the clue, they ambushed the thirteen police operatives who were not aware of the ambush.
“Was it not here in Zamfara State when a soldier was arrested along with his girlfriend supplying arms to the bandits?
“No matter what the government does, it will not win the war against banditry because of the insiders who are giving information to them.
“I suggests that the government should place a capital punishment on informants because that is the only option to end banditry in the state.”
The commentator maintained that bandits would not operate successfully without the guidance of the insiders who are the informants in the system, saying that the bandits are succeeding in Zamfara State because they have informants everywhere.
“The government should not believe that the security operatives are fighting bandits because there are bad eggs among them who are more dangerous than the bandits themselves.
“Has anybody cared to reflect on how these bandits are getting their arms and ammunition and they are carrying out their operations successfully?”
