Col. Abubakar Umar: Nnamdi Kanu, IPOB is not a threat but bandit and kidnappers~details below



 The former Kaduna military governor Col. Abubakar Umar, has mocked president Muhammadu Buhari led administration

The former military governor Abubakar Umar alleged that “president Buhari should not rejoice over the arrest of the leader of IPOB because Nnamdi Kanu is not a threat
He should rather focus on banditry and kidnappers that is a bigger insecurity threat and crippling the country and the economic activities” 
According to Col. Abubakar “The re-arrest of the IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu, elicited congratulatory messages to the Federal Government which appears overwhelmed and intractable security challenges and in dire need of any redeeming act” 
“This is clearly an exaggeration of the security threat Nnamdi Kanu and indeed IPOB pose to our nation’s security and unity”
The ambiguity and disturbing stance of the Federal Government undue attention to the threats of separatist movements is laughable in contrast to the more threatening ones posed by bandits, kidnappers and insurgents in the North West, some parts of North-Central and North-East. 
According to the Col. Abubakar Umar, who made this statements on Wednesday said President Buhari should not celebrate the arrest of Nnamdi Kanu but redirect his attention to the banditry and kidnappers that is a threat to his administration. 
The former military governor Abubakar Umar said that; “the activities of banditry and kidnappers has absolutely affected the average northerners living in the North-West and North-East nagatively
And have rendered so many people homeless and jobless, so the arrest of Kanu had no consequence “since it does nothing to curb his harsh and brutal condition.”
Abubakar further alleged that, “Over 1,000 schoolchildren were abducted in the past eight months with over 300 still in the cage of the bandits and kidnappers who are demanding wholesome ransom.
 Rape of women and young girls has become a daily occurrences, most economic activities, particularly farming, the mainstay of the people in these areas, are now all in a halt.”
