Investigation linked police, military officers to bandits – Gov El-Rufai

Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai says report of a preliminary investigation linked some serving police and military officers to bandits terrorizing parts of the State.

Speaking during the weekly briefing organised by the Presidential Communication Media Team at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, El-Rufai said the investigation revealed that the security officers have some form of communication with the assailants.

He said, “we’re concerned and it’s not impossible to have infiltrators. As I alluded to when I was answering this question, the preliminary report of (investigation into) Boko Haram financing also showed some links to bandits and pointed to some police and military officers in service as having some communication or connection with the bandits.

“So, there’s always that risks, in any system you have traitors and we are concerned about that. But till date, we don’t have any firm evidence of that. I think a lot more work needs to be done”.
