Matthew Kukah, Catholic Bishop of Sokoto diocese, has asked
the federal government to interrogate “key Nigerians” who claim to have close
ties with bandits.

 

On March 20, the federal government said it uncovered the
identity of 15 entities, including nine individuals and six Bureau De Change
operators and firms, allegedly involved in terrorism financing.

In an interview with Channels Television on Tuesday, Kukah
said it is clear that the government, through intelligence, knows what is going
on.

 

He added that those who have publicly claimed ties with the
bandits should be interrogated.

 “It is clear that the
federal government at the highest level knows what is going on. At least the
intelligence community has an idea,” he said.

 

“There are key Nigerians who are saying openly that they
know more than they think the rest of us know, and I think that it is the
business of the federal government to find out those who claim to know where the
bandits are; those who are collaborating and cooperating with the bandits.

 

“It is the greatest humiliation of our nation. The security
agencies in collaboration with those who have said openly that they know what
is going on… I think the federal government has the capacity to go after those
people.”
