Bandits, Boko Haram not more powerful than DSS, military, govt supporting them – Deji Adeyanju claims

Popular Nigerian rights activist, Deji Adeyanju, has suggested that the Federal Government is fueling the security challenge in the country.


Adeyanju suggested that the Federal government is supporting bandits, killer herders, and Boko Haram in their clandestine activities.


The rights activist explained that these criminals were not more powerful than the Nigerian security agencies but support from government has kept them afloat.


In a tweet, Adeyanju wrote: “Bandits, killer herdsmen and Boko Haram are not more powerful than our military, DSS, Police, DIA, NIA, etc; they are just getting Govt support and help.”


Bandits have been abducting and killing people in the Northern part of the country.


States like Zamfara, Kaduna, Niger, Sokoto, Kebbi, and Katsina states have been the most affected by bandits.

Recently, gunmen believed to be bandits had attacked the Nigerian Defence Academy, NDA, and killed some officers while abducting two Majors.


While bandits are ravaging the North, killer herders have been attacking farmers and sacking communities in other parts of the country.


The activist also insist that since Buhari was called hero after coup, Sunday Igboho and Nnamdi Kanu are not criminals.

Mr Deji Adeyanju wondered why Kanu and Igboho should be treated as criminals for demanding self determination.


In a tweet, the activist recalled that President Muhammadu Buhari was referred to as a hero for overthrowing a government.


According to Adeyanju: “If Buhari, who overthrew a democratically elected government can become president years later and referred to as a hero by some people, then how can Nnamdi Kanu and Sunday Igboho who are only demanding for self determination be treated like criminals?”


Kanu was recently captured in an African country, believed to be Kenya, and repatriated to Nigeria.


Since his return to Nigeria, the IPOB leader has been in custody of the Department of State Services, DSS.


Kanu’s remand in DSS custody was ordered by Justice Binta Nyako-led Federal High Court.



Also, Igboho who has been agitating for Oduduwa Republic had his residence invaded by DSS operatives.


He, however, escaped but some of his aides were arrested and killed during the attack.


Condemning the incident, Adeyanju, tweeted: “BREAKING: Jobless Buhari regime arrest Sunday Igboho in Cotonou.


“But they can’t arrest terrorists who kill people weekly and even shoot down our fighter jets.


“I urge you to stand with your own who has not committed any crime. Self determination is not a crime. They are still standing with killer herdsmen who have killed over 20,000 Nigerians under Buhari & even asking that everyone should give them land and we budget billions for them.”
