Senator Shehu Sani has said that there is no other proof needed to show that bandits have become the fourth tier of Government.

The former senator representing Kaduna Central at the National Assembly stated this on his Twitter page on Tuesday while lamenting the activities of bandits in Niger State.

According to him, the Governor of Niger revealed that terrorists occupy 12 of the 25 Local Governments in the state.

Sani recalled that Niger is a state that neighbours the Federal Capital and asked what additional proof is needed that bandits have become the fourth tier of Government.

Activities of deadly bandits had since escalated from the North-Western states to the North Central state of Niger.

After weeks of footdragging, the Federal Government in January declared bandits as terrorists.

Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami (SAN), gazetted a court judgement that ordered the government to declare bandits as terrorists.
