Insecurity In Nigeria: Identify, kill all bandits, Buhari orders military

President Muhammadu Buhari on Saturday ordered the military to identify and kill bandits carrying out attacks across the country.

The President said he was disturbed that bandits not only kill, but also maim and extort their victims.

Buhari gave the orders in  Katsina State while addressing 15 officers and 160 soldiers of the 17th Army Brigade and Nigerian Air Force 213 Operational Base.

Speaking at the  Musa Yar’Adua Airport, Katsina, Buhari told the men working under the code name, “Operation Hadarin Daji,” to live up to the primary reason the operation was set up.

He said, “This group was formed by the military to secure this geopolitical zone (North-West) from the activities of bandits. Fundamentally, it is your responsibility to secure the country.

“As the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces, I believe you are capable of doing it. I don’t think you should spare any bandit. Identify and eliminate them. Pursue them anywhere you can find them and eliminate them.

“Nigeria deserves peace. The rainy season is good and we are already achieving food security, but we need peace. The money saved from food importation will be used to purchase arms for operations.”

Buhari told the troops the Federal Government would provide for their needs for them to focus on the assignment.
