A former Commissioner of Police in Lagos State, Abubakar Tsav says politicians are responsible for activities of the bandits terrorising Nigeria.
Tsav told newsmen in Makurdi today that banditry and most insecurities occurring in the country were created by politicians.
He said most politicians knew exactly who the bandits are and why they are carrying out such activities.
He said the increased level of corruption and porous borders has also contributed to the ongoing security challenge as most arms were smuggled into the country through the borders.
Tsav advised the Federal Government to embark on massive employment of security personnel as this will mop up most of the unemployed youth from the streets and reduce criminality in the country.
According to him, security agencies, especially the police, lack manpower to handle the incessant security breaches in the country as most of the ones in the service are currently attached to politicians.
