“Security Is Not The Responsibility Of The Military Alone, Stand And Face The Bandits”


Maj- Gen. Bashir Magashi

Defence Minister Maj- Gen. Bashir Magashi, has asked Nigerians to fight bandits as the issue of insecurity is not meant to be tackled by military officers alone.

Magashi said this on Wednesday, February 17 while speaking with newsmen after the screening of the service chiefs by members of the House of Representatives.

Reacting to the abduction of 27 students of the Government Science College, Kagara in Niger state, Magashi said;

”Is it (security issue) the responsibility of the military alone? We shouldn’t be cowards. It is the responsibility of everybody to be alert and ensure safety when necessary. We shouldn’t be cowards.

Sometimes bandits come with about three rounds of ammunition and when they fire shots everybody will run. In our younger days, we stand to fight any form of aggression.

Why should people run away from minor, minor aggressions?

We should stand and face them. If these people know that the people have the competence and capability to defend themselves, they will run away”
