Buhari could end insurgency and banditry in six months, Former Minister.

A former Minister of Internal Affairs during the military regime of President Muhammadu Buhari, Major General Mohammed Magoro, rtd, says there is no reason the federal government should not end Boko Haram insurgency and banditry in six months.

Magoro spoke recently in a viral video. “In 1983, during President Shehu Shagari’s time, rebels were terrorizing our people on the Nigerian Islands in Lake Chad. Mr. President was the General Officer Commanding (GOC), 3 Armored Division in Jos. “At that time, he moved his headquarters to Maiduguri and dealt decisively with all those rebels, cleaned all the islands. Now, today, he is not a General Officer Commanding, he is a Commander in Chief! We do not expect anything less from him,” Magoro said. He, however, decried the role of collaborators and saboteurs in the fight against Boko Haram and banditry, saying: “Indeed, we’ve to accept the fact that there are collaborators in our midst who pass information to Boko Haram and bandits. The National Assembly should pass a law to deal with collaborators and saboteurs.”
