Former Minister of Defence, Lt. Gen. Theophilus Danjuma (rtd) has said the country would be reduced to nothing if bandits terrorising the country are not rooted out.
He said their mission is to re-colonise the people and alluded to the warning he issued some years back which he said has vindicated him today after being called a liar by the Ministry of Defence.
Danjuma spoke Saturday in Wukari, during the recent action of the staff of the office to the 25th Aku-Uka of Wukari, HRM. Manu Ishaku Adda Ali Amatakitswen.
According to him, “our country is under siege by armed bandits.
“When some few years ago I warned that the armed forces are either not capable or unwilling to protect us and that we must defend ourselves, the first denial about what I said came from the ministry of defence.
“They said I was lying and they set up a kangaroo board of inquiry to investigate the truth or otherwise of what I said.
