Following the recent attacks on Kaduna International Airport and a train line in the state, the Nigerian government has been accused of collaborating with bandits.



President Muhammadu Buhari, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, Service Chiefs, and governors, according to Deji Adeyanju, the convener of Concerned Nigerians, will take the issue of insecurity seriously if they become victims.

Within a week, bandits blew up the Kaduna-Abuja rail line and assaulted the Kaduna Airport.

On Saturday, at about 12.30 p.m., the bandits allegedly seized the Kaduna Airport and blocked an airplane from taking off.

The Federal Airport Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) confirmed the event, saying security agents fought the robbers and returned the airport to normalcy.

While the state was still reeling from the attack, bandits attacked again, this time bombing a rail line between Katari and Rijani train station on the Kaduna-Abuja route.

Banditry activity along the Kaduna-Abuja route has decreased, but the rail line appears to be the gunmen's latest objective, according to NAIJACRAWL.

The military and other security agencies' substantial presence in Kaduna, which houses practically all military and other security architecture training institutes in the country, has not been fully utilized in combating insecurity in the state.

In the midst of this security presence, the state has continued to experience a high level of insecurity, leading some Nigerians to conclude that the government is colluding with the robbers.

Deji Adeyanju, an Abuja-based activist, told NAIJACRAWL that the manner in which bandits operate freely creates a basis for suspicion that the government is working with them.

"Our politicians don't take the security situation in the country seriously; the Service Chiefs don't take it seriously because it's now a business to them; you know, they're laughing to the bank at the expense of the country," Adeyanju stated. Governors, Senators, and members of the National Assembly are unconcerned. They would only take it seriously if it happened to the governor or a minister, or if it happened to legislators. "My advice to these bandits is that they abandon the ordinary Nigerian and confront these powerful individuals." Only if the President, Vice President, governors, and service chiefs are affected will we be able to find a solution.
