The Commandant General of the Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), Ahmed Audi, says the reason bandits and terrorists are more daring is because of international support.
Speaking during a training workshop for state NSCDC commandants in Abuja on Wednesday, Audi alleged that the bandits terrorsing the North West and other regions of the county have international sponsors.
He noted that the only way to stop the incessant attacks on schools in the North and to tackle banditry in the country is synergy and collaboration between security agencies.
Audi warned against supremacy and rivalry among security agencies, urging all stakeholders to work towards winning the war against bandits.
“Following how events are unfolding in the country, we are experiencing a serious conflict that I think in the history of Nigeria, this is about the first conflict that will give us a serious problem and the conflict is called asymmetric war.
“We have had in the past some semblance of this type of war but the proper manifestation of it is the one we are seeing now and asymmetric war is a war that requires all hands to be on deck if we really want to deal with it and nip it in the bud.
“These guys are serious; these guys have international sponsors, so we need to come together,” he said.
