To the relief of the whole world and that of the innocent people that have fallen victim to this crazy bandits, the President of the federal republic of Nigeria Muhammadu Buhari has finally decided to call a spade a spade by charging the military to be more spontaneous in restoring peace to the country, particularly states troubled by bandits.
An order that hasn’t been stated this clearly long before now, and to think that the President knew just what he was expected to say long before now, and he just kept mute?
He was said to have given the order in Katsina on Saturday while ordering them “not to spare bandits’’. A statement by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Malam Garba Shehu released in Abuja on Saturday, said the order had become necessary in view of the fact that the bandits had been killing, maiming and extorting innocent citizens.
Shehu said the president was addressing 15 officers and 160 soldiers of the 17th Army Brigade and Nigerian Air Force 213 Operational Base in Katsina, under the “Operation Hadarin Daji’’, at the Umaru Musa Yar’Adua Airport, Katsina.
The statement quoted President Buhari as saying, “This group was formed by the military to secure the geo-political zone from the activities of bandits. Fundamentally, it is your responsibility to secure the country.
