The Federal Government has said that the allegation in specific quarters that it approaches outlaws like a child is ‘incorrect and deceiving’.
The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, expressed this on Tuesday when he highlighted on the Nigeria Television Authority program, “Great Morning Nigeria”.
Talking on the recharged surge against outlaws on the program checked by the News Agency of Nigeria in Abuja, the clergyman said banditry is culpability with no premise on religion or belief system.
He said the methodology of the central government through the military in treating crooks isn’t to make a qualification among scoundrels and fear mongers.
“I think we have been moving around terminology, a criminal is a criminal whether it is a scoundrel or fear based oppressor and a similar measure is being allotted to them.
“That is the reason we think that it is crazy, the allegation that the central government is gentler on desperados than the separatists and different lawbreakers. This is a paradox, counterfeit news and deception all into one, and this is the sort of disruptive way of talking being advanced by certain downers,” he said.
Mohammed said it is silly for the military to treat outlaws, who are killing warriors and police officers, with kid-gloves.
He added that the technique for the military in battling guiltiness through the land and air would not take into account any qualification among outlaws and different hoodlums.
Mohammed said with the recharged assault against outlaws and specific measures taken by the legislative leaders of the states where criminals are working, they are winning the conflict.
He said the lead representatives had gained from the mix-ups of the past and had settled that they would not haggle with scoundrels yet to follow them and not extra them.
Mohammed said measures, for example, suspension of portable media transmission networks in specific regions and the restriction on the offer of oil based goods in jerry jars at filling stations around the land borders are yielding outcomes.
He included that the boycott the offer of genuinely utilized cruisers in certain business sectors and limitation on the utilization of “intersection engine parks” in the states are additionally yielding outcomes.
