Apparently miffed by worsening insecurity in the country, President Muhammadu Buhari wants security operatives to deal ruthlessly with bandits terrorizing a few states in Northern Nigeria.
The Chief of Defence Staff, General Gabriel Olonisakin, told reporters at the end of about two hours security meeting at the Presidential Villa that no stone would be left unturned towards securing every part of the country.
“The security meeting we just had with Mr. President today is to review the strategy that we are adopting in confronting security issues in Zamfara State especially and other places nationwide.
“And this review strategy is to address all the issues including kidnapping, banditry and other associated issues confronting the nation. We are coming out with a revised strategy to handle these challenges,” he saidWhen asked if there was any marching order from the president, he said “Yeah, the marching order is for us to deal with this issue immediately and ruthlessly and ensure that all those bandits are immediately dealt with and all those issues that are bordering with our security are properly addressed.” Also, the Acting Inspector-General of Police, IGP, Mohammed Adamu said after confrontation with bandits and kidnappers at the Abuja-Kaduna road, the road has been cleared. It is now safe for motorists.
