He urged the federal government to apprehend bandits demonstrating cruelty and killing fellow citizens.

“What we are saying is that the government (should put) an end to bloodshed by curtailing insurgency. How can humans be slaughtering fellow humans like animals. The perpetrators must not be allowed to go free. They must be apprehended,” he added.
