The National Security Adviser, Babagan Monguno said Nigeria would not negotiate w bandits as it has what it takes to deal with the current security challenges in the country.
Monguno, spoke in Abuja yesterday that it is a sign of weakness for the country to dialogue with the bandits currently rampaging across the country.
He lamented that the country could not keep on dwelling on dialogue, adding psychologically, it was not even good for the government.
“It pants the picture of incapacity and I, just as the governor of Kaduna State, does not see any reason why we cannot, with all we have, deal with these elements.
“These are not people who are looking for anything that is genuine, crucial, legitimate. These are people whom are just out to perform atrocities, to take calculated measures to inflict pains and violence on people.
“At the slightest opportunity, they go haywire and so, it is important for all to realise that we are dealing with people, who are not looking for anything, people, who without provocation, will give vent to their homicidal instincts and we must deal with them the way they have to be dealt with”, Monguno said.
