Politicians use thugs to attack people, mimicking herdsmen – Brig. Gen. John Agim
In an interview with Punchng, the acting Director of Defence Information, Brig. Gen. John Agim, revealed that some politicians were using their thugs against another community within the same state, and they made it looked as if herdsmen were attacking the people. Some of these people were arrested.
For instance, in a local government area, there are two communities fighting against each other and we arrested some people with arms. We did not want to blow it up because it will be misinterpreted.
Some of the suspects arrested and stopped from carrying out that vandalism told us that some politicians sent them against another community to carry out those attacks.
