The call came after a Security Committee presented a report on bandit attacks on civilians.

Alhaji Muhammad Abubakar (APC-Dutsinma), the committee’s chairman, said the call was part of the committee’s recommendations on how to end the terror reigns of the bandits.

The declaration of bandits as terrorists, according to Abubakar, would enable the military, police, and other security agencies the authority to deal with them appropriately.
