A former Deputy-Governor of Kaduna State, Bala Bantex has opposed the idea of the federal or state governments granting amnesty to bandits.
Speaking during an interview on Channels Television’s Sunday Politics, Bantex described statements credited to non-state actors on insecurity as a mark of failure.
According to the former deputy governor, some people are benefitting from insecurity in Nigeria and would not want it to end.
Amid the myriads of security challenges facing the country, the ex-deputy governor said there was a need for the Federal Government to create state police.
He however called on the National Assembly to create the necessary legislation for the creation of state police.
