President Muhammadu Buhari has warned that bandits will no longer have a hiding place.
Reacting to the recent bandits’ killing of 30 marketers in Goronyo, Sokoto State, the President warned that the clock of their ultimate destruction was ticking fast.
President Buhari emphasised that the days of the bandits were numbered as the capabilities of the military had been boosted by the acquisition and deployment of advanced equipment.
He said the bandits were currently under desperate pressures because of the intense and sustained air and ground operations against them in their hideouts.
He appealed to Nigerians to keep hopes high as his administration was determined more than ever before to protect them from murderous criminal gangs that had no respect for the sanctity of human life.
A statement by the Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Mallam Garba Shehu, says President Buhari extends his sympathy to the families of the victims of the Goronyo attack, and calls on the people to continue to be patient as the military strategises on how to deliver the crushing blow to those undesirable elements.
