An Islamic Cleric identified as Sheikh Murtala Bello Sokoto has called on the Nigerian Army to bomb all identified bandits’ enclaves in the forests irrespective of the collateral damage that may be incurred.

Sheikh Bello enjoined the government and military to intensify efforts towards ending activities of terror-bandits, as the security forces record victories against the criminal elements.

The religious leader also identified the activities of unpatriotic informants within the society who supply information to the bandits regarding troops movements as a major impediment to the success of military operations in Nigeria.

In his words, “I am calling on the federal government and the military to fear Allah and do what is necessary to eradicate the activities of the criminals.”

“Not only civilians, even security forces in Northern Nigeria are now in a difficult situation and the government should do what is required to end this problem by just eliminating the enemies to end terrorism in the North.”

“There are many terrorists’ hideouts that needs to be bombarded and level to the ground. Meanwhile, the few law-abiding citizens who are residing close to them [hideouts] should be asked to vacate the locations as soon as possible.”

“It is possible to cut a rotten finger in an attempt to ensure the well-being of the entire part of the body.”
