"Be Ruthless In Fighting Bandits" - President Buhari Tells Nigerian Military Men


Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari has challenged the Nigerian Military men deployed to Katsina State and saddled with the task of fighting bandits in Zamfara, to be`as ruthless as humanly possible’ in carrying out their assignment.

President Buhari stated this while addressing the 1000-strong military force assembled to check the menace of the bandits and other criminal elements at the Umaru Musa Yar’Adua International Airport Katsina today.

This is coming after the Federal Government had, on July 29, assembled military personnel, comprising of the Army, Air force, Police and the Civil defence to help in tackling the activities of the bandits.

According to report the Nigerian Air Force (NAF) has deployed fighter aircrafts to Katsina, the airport with the closest proximity to Zamfara, to allow for immediate and effective response to the menace of the bandits.

It was gathered that the President had also authorised the engagement by NAF, of advanced satellite surveillance technology to help in accurate detection of movement and locations of the bandits that have been terrorising innocent rural dwellers, razing down several villages and towns across the local government areas of Zamfara, while also kidnapping them for ransom.
