The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is alarmed by the recent escalation of banditry in Niger State as well as other parts of the country, following the failure of the Buhari-led All Progressives Congress (APC) administration to take decisive step to tackle the scourge.

The party also condemns the reported killing as well as abduction of students of the Government Science Secondary School Kagara, Niger State  by bandits, who invaded their school this morning.

Bandits were reported to have on Tuesday, moved from village to village, supported by a helicopter, as they pillaged our compatriots, sacked major highways and held communities in Niger state hostage for several hours without any counter attack.

The PDP describes as revealing that while the people of Niger state and Nigerians in other states were under attack by bandits, APC leaders, including those in Niger state, were busy pursuing their party’s phony membership re-registration exercise, instead of rallying security and rescue efforts for the people.

The lethargic stance of the APC administration towards the fight against banditry further validates reports in the public space that the bandits are connected to the APC and enjoying cover under the ruling party.
