The Federal Government of Nigeria has raised an alarm as bandits presumed to have formed an alliance with the Islamist State of West African Province (ISWAP),a subgroup of Boko Haram.

The government arrived on this conclusion as it considered the nature of recent attacks on government installations and public systems in Kaduna State, as the reason for its submission.

On Wednesday, the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, stated this while fielding questions from State House correspondents after the Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting presided over by President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa in Abuja, the nation’s capital.

The minister said: “What is happening now is that there is a kind of an unholy handshake between bandits and Boko Haram insurgents. Preliminary reports of what transpired at the Kaduna train attacks shows that there is a kind of collaboration between the bandits and the dislodged Boko Haram terrorists from the northeast. I can tell you very confidently that the Federal Government on the top of this matter”. He Opined.
