A Bandit leader has been secretly recorded telling an Emir that bandits in the State are always informed beforehand of every military operations that affect them.
According to an exclusive audio obtained by Punch Newspaper, the bandit leader in a discussion with the emir said bombing doesn’t work on them because they are always informed before military helicopters leaves any base.
“The reason why their bombing will not work is because before their helicopter comes around, information has already reached us. Before the helicopter leaves any base, the information will reach us and even where it will land. If they bomb any place, they will kill only birds and animals which are there.
“Also on land, soldiers were sent to attack us. But before they come, information has reached us. We know how we will attack them and know all areas where they will follow. We want you to ban anything vigilantes.
“People are surprised that they use airplanes to attack us but we are just like ants. They can’t see us; it is God that is helping us.”
The emir in his reply to bandit said, “We also are not in support of the bombings.”
“Killing human beings is not good. I have heard your grievances and it is a load on me and I will try to unite the people of the community. We will still call you together to deliberate on it. I will try to ban vigilantes in any other place and I will give the feedback to the government.”
