Informants are the greatest headache Military, Police face in bandits war – Gov laments

The Governor of Kaduna State Nasir El-Rufai has said that fighting banditry has been challenging because of the activities of informants.

According to the Governor, informants are the biggest challenge and greatest stumbling block in the fight against banditry in the State.

The Governor said this at the Armed Forces Remembrance Day celebration in Kaduna on Saturday

He said :“The level of insecurity we face in the country, especially here in Kaduna State, is of great concern and I think that the Security Agencies, especially the Military and the Police are doing their best but we need every stakeholder in order to contribute; because the biggest problem we have are the informants that live within us.


“I think it is important for religious and community leaders not only to raise their advocacy but to also watch out for people that seem to be spending a lot of money without any clear means of livelihood, they are probably informants of kidnappers; they should be report to the authorities nearest to them.”

He ended by appreciating the armed forces for thier effort against banditry and assured them of governments support not only in resources but also prayers.
