Nigerian singer, Osayamwen Donald, popularly known as Djinee, has disclosed the reason the federal government has failed in its effort to rid the country of bandits.
The 'Ego' singer tweeted on Monday that unless it has a direct impact on their lives and livelihoods, it is obvious the officials in governement will never bulge.
Citing the COVID-19 pandemic and EndSARS protest as examples, Djinee said the government will only take serious action against bandits when it has a direct impact on their lives, and family members.
“The government never attacks any issue (good and bad) except it has a direct impact on their lives and livelihoods. Ebola, COVID, End SARS protest, crypto etc, they acted decisively. They’ll treat bandits with kid gloves until their lives and that of their families are in danger.
“All it takes for the government to wipe out this menace is for the bandits and herdsmen to take the lives of one of their own, “mistakenly”. Till then they can continue to brazenly kidnap and maim ordinary Nigerians for all the government cares,” he said.
