Senator Adamu Bulkachuwa says bandits are no different from terrorists, insisting that both groups operate the same way.
“We gave them the name bandit probably to just soft pedal because terrorism in the international arena is regarded as the most heinous crime that any group of people can engage in,” he told Channels Sunday Politics.
“They are terrorists in reality. What else are they? Anybody that does not allow people rest, what is he?”
The Senator is one of the latest high-profile Nigerians to have joined calls for bandits and their sponsors to be tagged as terrorists.
