Earlier, Legit.ng reported that Shehu Sani, a former senator representing Kaduna Central, had reacted to reports on the neutralisation of Ansaru bandits in the state by the police.

On his Twitter page on Thursday, February 6, Shehu Sani called on the police to show proof of the feat in their recent operation.

The former lawmaker said that doing this is important because, for most Nigerians, evidence is the only condition for trust and belief.

However, the remarks and comments by Sani have triggered some reactions from Nigerians on social media.

One Twitter subscriber by the name Kabiru Usman Misali said that it is a shame that Sani is only politicising the issue.

However, a Twitter user, Abdul Ganiu, said that the lawmaker's point of view is valid, but that he can do more by personally joining in the struggle against banditry throughout Nigeria.
