    Defence Minister Berates Nigerians For Not Defending Themselves From Bandits

    Nigeria’s Minister of Defence, Maj. Gen. Bashir Magashi (Retd.) has expressed his disappointment people who run away from minor bandit attacks.

    According to Magashi, citizens need not be coward as it is their responsibility to defend themselves against bandits terrorising their communities.

    The Minister who was reacting to the Kagara attacks, made the shocking revelation while addressing journalists on Wednesday, February 17, 2021.

    Clips from the interview currently making the rounds, show Magashi admonishing citizens to stay and fight as oftentimes, the bandits have few ammunition.

    He said, “It is the responsibility of everybody to keep alert and to find safety when necessary. But we shouldn’t be cowards.

    “At times, the bandits will only come with about three rounds of ammunition, when they fire shots everybody runs. In our younger days, we stand to fight any aggression coming for us.

    “I don’t know why people are running from minor things like that. They should stand and let these people know that even the villagers have the competency and capabilities to defend themselves.

    “Our own duty is to ensure that no Nigerian is hurt, and we are capable of protecting the integrity of this nation and we’ll continue to do it even though we are so stretched.”
