Femi Fani-Kayode, former Aviation Minister, has called on the federal government to deploy the newly acquired American Tucano Jets to combat insecurity in Nigeria.
This came following the recent reports of several villagers being massacred by escaping bandits in Zamfara State.
Fani-Kayode reacted to the killing via his Twitter handle on Sunday sympathising with the family of the deceased and the Zamfara State government.
.He wrote: “The slaughter of over 50 innocent civilians in Zamfara state by the fleeing terrorists is utterly barbaric and I join millions of my compatriots in wholeheartedly condemning this wicked, cruel, and cowardly act.
“I commiserate with my friend and brother, His Excellency Gov. Bello Matawalle, the Emirs and the people of Zamfara at this difficult time. I call on the Buhari administration & our Armed Forces to continue to seek out the terrorists for destruction and to bring them to justice.
“It is indeed time to consider the use of massive carpet-bombing of our forests and to deploy the newly-acquired American Tucano jets to finally rid our land of these evil forces that seek to destroy us all.
“May God defend our nation and deliver her from these murderous terrorists and evil and bloodthirsty savages that seek to crush and destroy us all.
“In the end, we shall surely prevail.”
