“If I Have One Conversation With terrorists, I’ll Invade Their Hideout” – Yahaya Bello Claims
The Governor of Kogi State Yahaya Bello has wondered why some officials would have conversations with terrorists via telephone or through another medium without getting to know their hideout.
The governor said he does not compromise on security, claims that was why Kogi State is bandit free.
Bello made the statement while he was being interviewed by the anchors of the Channels Television Sunrise Daily Breakfast Show, on Friday, August 19, 2022.
In his words:
“I cannot have a conversation with terrorists and they will still remain in their hideout. I will mobilize to dislodge and fish them out. This is why Kogi State is safe today because I don’t play politics with insecurity”, he said.
Bello while on the program argued that the All Progressive Congress (APC) led government has improved on what they met on the ground when they took power in 2015.
He argued that the APC Muslim-Muslim ticket is a perfect combination that will help in tackling the insecurity problem the country is grappling with.
Remember that the Katsina State Governor, Aminu Masari regretted negotiating with bandits.
Masari said with the benefit of experience , that his government should never have negotiated with bandits, let alone grant them amnesty.
Although Masari said he never regretted his decision at the time, he admitted that information available to him confirmed that engaging the bandits was not the right thing to do.
He explained that information is the greatest challenge to the fight against insecurity in that part of the country.
