The National Security Adviser, Babagana Monguno says the Federal Government will apply its full weight to deal with the criminals and will not be blackmailed by any group of people into negotiating with those who threaten the nation’s peace.
The NSA who spoke at a State House briefing in Aso Villa, Abuja, on Thursday said the present administration is not interested in negotiation with bandits, terrorists, and other criminal elements terrorizing the country.
“We can’t keep on dwelling on “let’s dialogue”. Physiologically it’s not even good for us. It paints the picture of weakness, it paints the picture of incapacity and I just like the governor of Kaduna state do not see the any reason why we cannot with what we have deal with these elements.
“These are not people who are looking for anything that is genuine, crucial, legitimate, these are people who are just out to perform atrocities, to take measures, calculated measures, to inflict pain, violence on people.
“At the slightest opportunity, they go haywire and so it is important for us to realise that we are dealing with people who are not looking for anything, who without provocation will give vent to their homicidal instincts and we must deal with them the way they have to be dealt with.
