Turji: Government ‘betrayed’ us

Following the aerial bombardment of his residence by military fighter jets, the notorious Zamfara bandit kingpin, Bello Turji, has expressed his dismay over the action of the Nigerian Government.

Speaking on phone with some of his acquaintances, Mr Turji expressed his bitterness over the air raid on his abode and the killing of vulnerable people.

“There have not been any attacks in the last five months since we reached a truce with the government but now that the military has attacked our home, we feel betrayed especially after the death of vulnerable people in the airstrikes”, Turji said.

The Skuup has reported on 19 September, that Turji had escaped air raid by the Nigerian Air Force on his Shinkafi residence.
