Why Bandits Can’t Be Proscribed Like IPOB In Nigeria – Lai Mohammed

Lai Mohammed, the Minister of Information and Culture, has said bandits can not be proscribed like the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB because of their lack of identity and affiliation to a group.

The Minister disclosed this while featuring on AIT’s Kaakaki programme.

He stressed that how bandits are treated is what matters and not about proscribing them.

Mohammed said, “You proscribe known groups with names. You can’t just proscribe an unknown group legally. Secondly, it’s not whether they are proscribed or not, it is the way they are treated.

“Does the government actually treat them with kid gloves? The answer is no.

“When a group is championing a course for the disintegration of Nigeria, a group like IPOB (that) does not even recognise Nigeria as a state, sets up its own army and thinks it is a sovereign state, is different from bandits and criminals. Please, don’t compare apples and oranges.”
