INSECURITY: Only Solution Is To Bomb Terrorists Out Of Existence, Says El-Rufai

By Adadainfo

Following the rising insecurity in parts of the country, including the nation’s capital, Abuja, Kaduna State Governor Nasir El-Rufai has insisted that the best way to tackle the problem is to bomb the terrorists out of existence.  

He said, “I have always said it – and the people of Kaduna State know that I have been saying it since about five years ago – that we should use the army and air force to bomb these people out of existence. There is no way to end this challenge, except we do that.”

According to him, President Muhammadu Buhari is not aware of the threat by terrorists to abduct him until he brought it to the president’s notice.

A video was released at the weekend by the terrorists who abducted some train passengers in March 28th, 2022, in which they threatened to abduct both President Buhari and Governor El-Rufai, among others.

El-Rufai said for the past five years, he had been calling for the bombing of terrorists’ camps wherever they are, saying it’s the only solution to the problem.

According to him, insurgency in the country has grossly affected economic activities, including construction works in parts of the state, and had got worse since the attack on the Abuja-Kaduna train. 

“The insecurity is really setting us back. Now, it has gotten to a level where terrorists will go to Kuje prison and free their people. And they even did a video where they were threatening to abduct President Muhammadu Buhari and myself and take us to their jungle,” El-Rufai, who is a member of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), said in an interview.

He said waiting for the insurgents to attack before responding is not what will bring an end to the challenges.

“It is compulsory that we take the battle to their doorstep and deal with them,” he stated.
