Niger State governor, Abubakar Sani Bello, has revealed those behind banditry in Nigeria.
He said that bandits were foreigners hired to cause problems in the country.
The governor disclosed this while addressing the 1000 combined security operatives deployed to rescue 136 abducted students from Salihu Tanko Islamiya School in Tegina, Rafi Local Government Area of the state.
Bello also exonerated the Fulani tribe from the ongoing banditry in the country.
He said, “Nigerians must try their best not make them succeed in forcing us to change our normal lives.
“Most of these bandits are from outside the country.
“They are hired to cause problems for us. It is not the habit of the true Fulani to indulge in this kind of act.
“These bandits are well organised and coordinated.”
