Don't be cowards, Stand up and face the bandits - Defence Minister tells Nigerians

The Defence Minster, Maj- Gen. Bashir Magashi has announced to Nigerians not to be a coward and also be prepared to face the bandits when they come attacking their communities.

This announcement was made by Magashi on Wednesday, February 17 while he was speaking with newsmen after the screening of the service chiefs by members of the House of Representatives.

In His statement, he said;

”Is it (security issue) the responsibility of the military alone? We shouldn’t be cowards. It is the responsibility of everybody to be alert and ensure safety when necessary. We shouldn’t be cowards. Sometimes bandits come with about three rounds of ammunition and when they fire shots everybody will run. In our younger days, we stand to fight any form of aggression.
Why should people run away from minor, minor aggressions?
We should stand and face them. If these people know that the people have the competence and capability to defend themselves, they will run away”
