Former Minister of Education, Oby Ezekwesili has alleged that there is a “strange incestuous relationship between government and abductors.”
Ezekwesili stated this through a post on Social media on Friday.
She accused both the federal and state government of being friendly towards the criminal elements.
She said, “There’s now an industry of abduction flourishing on basic market principles of demand and supply. It is enabled by a strange incestuous relationship between government and abductors. Folks in Federal and State Governments are throwing this friendship in faces of Citizens. SHAME.”
The former Minister in another post criticised the statement that bandits deserve sympathy, which was made by the Governor of Zamfara State, Bello Matawalle.
She said, “They were deliberate in coercing the Media to support their Rebranding of Terrorists as “Bandits”. Yesterday, I read that a Governor of Zamfara said, “Bandits deserve sympathy from Nigerians”. A man whose people are being killed daily by his rebranded terrorists.”
