“When bandits open fire, people should stand back and fight” – Minister of Defence tell Nigerians (Video)



Nigeria’s Defence Minister, Bashir Magashi, has advised citizens to stand back and fight bandits.

The retired General who stated this while addressing reporters on the banditry and attacks in some parts of the country, told Nigerians to stay at alert at all times.

The minister said people should not be cowards, adding that bandits sometimes possess few rounds of ammunition.

He said, “It is the responsibility of everybody to keep alert and to find safety when necessary. But we shouldn’t be cowards. “At times, the bandits will only come with about three rounds of ammunition, when they fire shots everybody runs.

In our younger days, we stand to fight any aggression coming for us. “I don’t know why people are running from minor things like that.

They should stand and let these people know that even the villagers have the competency and capabilities to defend themselves.”
