BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY

Nigeria has been a battleground for quite some time. In addition to the ongoing conflict between farmers and herders, other notable security issues include Biafra insurgents, radical Islamists in the North-East, kidnappings in several areas of the nation, the Niger Delta crisis, and so on. Abdullahi  (2019) assert that there are significant obstacles. However, the Boko Haram Party remains Nigeria's most serious security threat. The organisation poses a significant danger to neighbours, particularly Cameroon, Niger, and Chad, with considerable economic, social, and humanitarian ramifications (Channels TV 2020). For example, a gang recently killed 40 rice farmers in Jere Local Government, Borno State, Nigeria.

The UN determined that the death toll was substantially higher than what had been documented. However, while the organisation is making life tough for the people of the Northood, another organised group known as the armed bandits is making life difficult for the residents of Nigeria's northwest. Life is no longer holy in our corner of the world, and the cumulative effect will undoubtedly last for decades.

According to  Ibrahim (2020), the government is clearly frustrated, and the people are helpless. As a result, it is necessary to investigate the complexity of this recent growth in army banditry, the difficulties of combating banditry, and how bandits and rebels can protect the country from being completely shut down. But, first and foremost, who are those thieves?. Ladan (2020) opined that banditry abuse is not a new phenomenon in Nigeria. Nigeria's banditry heritage stretches back to the pre-civil war era, when the government devolved into political violence, criminality, and organised insurrection in some portions of the old Western Region.

Zango and  Rafindadi (2015) posited tha during the civilian era, local bandits allegedly robbed domestic animals. Bandits have recently been a source of concern in Nigeria's Northwest area, notably in the states of Zamfara, Sokoto, Katsina, Niger, Kaduna, and Kebbi. These bandits' operations vary from kidnapping to murder, robbery, rape, livestock rustling, and other crimes. Their method of operation include maiming and murdering their victims when they least expect it. They usually deployed through the woodlands into the neighbourhood on fast motorbikes, especially at night, and shot at will. Sometimes in the afternoon, when they are certain there will be no police or military presence, they unleash horror on the neighbourhoods. Hundreds of people have been killed as a result of this expanding menace.

Several children have been orphaned, and women have become widows overnight, while food insecurity and humanitarian disasters will make life much more difficult for many Nigerians. The reality is terrifying. "1,100 individuals were slain in six northwestern Nigerian nations in 2018, more than 2,200 were killed in 2019, and 1,600 were killed between January and June 2020," according to the report. Around 247,000 individuals were displaced, and their effort resulted in the creation of around 41,000 refugees. Over 8000 people have been murdered in Zamfara alone in the previous decade, with 200,000 internally displaced and others fleeing to neighbouring states. Sokoto's religious leader and Sultan, Muhammadu Sa eed Abubakar, stated, "Now, bandits go with AK47 in the north and bemoan the region's worst." It is vital to understand that the newest Northwest war arose from a dispute for decreasing lands and water supplies between farmers and herders, with the farmers largely Hausa and the herdsmen predominantly Fulani.

Furthermore, in a region where poverty is deeply ingrained and illiteracy is quite widespread, many Fulani' are preoccupied with cattle husbandry. As a result, anytime this source of income is endangered, whether by nature or human interference, they are prepared to go to any length to ensure their survival. Furthermore, there is the issue of small arms and light weapons proliferation in the area, as well as inequality and, as John Campbell puts it, "weakened, strained, and demoralised security agencies."
