It should be noted that bandits/kidnapping activity is a very bad practice that always leave both the victims and the family of the victims with a scaring thoughts making them believe that no one is secured. This is because they now operate in the broad daylight with their sofisticated weapons, ready to gun down anyone standing on their way. Governor Nasir should however think deeply before embarking on any action as lives of the abducted victims are involved. Deplomancy is the only way out.
