A former president federal republic of Nigeria, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo has advised the president of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari not to pity terrorists.
Chief Obasanjo gave this charge during his recent interview with BBC pidgin English in Nigeria.
He posited that zero tolerance is always the essence of having a trained soldiers in the country, adding that the military sacrifice everything to ensure peace and security in the state.
He added “soldiers are not trained to rehabilitate terrorists …they were trained to be brutal, they were trained not to show mercy nor sympathy and will do whatever it takes to restore peace and sanity.
So also, terrorists would do everything possible to resist that… rehabilitating terrorists is a weak security strategy to subdue insecurity… this is a wrong calculation.
