The Federal Government has denied that there is preferential treatment between groups advocating separation from the country and bandits, especially in the North West Zone.
Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN said the notion that the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) were getting harder clampdown from security forces, was misleading and erroneous
He maintained that the Federal Government would continue to apply all necessary measures, including use of the military, to prevent criminal groups from undermining the territorial integrity and peace of the country.
“We noticed that of recent, there is this misinformation as regards the way the Federal Government, especially the military, is handling the issue of banditry and terrorism.
“There is this misconception that the Federal Government is softer on the terrorists in the North East and the bandits from the North West and the way they handle separatists and other criminals from the South East and South West.
“I want to say without any hesitation that this is a fallacy. It is a misrepresentation, misinformation and fake news all rolled into one.
He stressed that the Federal Government does not make a distinction between terrorists and bandits, adding that all criminals are treated the same way.
