President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday mocked the bandits who invaded three communities in Goronyo and Illela Local Government Areas of Sokoto, killing 15 persons. Residents of the communities, however, revealed that the death toll rose to 39 on Tuesday.

President Buhari in a statement by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, cautioned that the military is deploying advanced technology to crush the bandits carrying out the attacks.

The statement reads: “This persistent and unprovoked violence against unarmed civilians must be met with fierce response by the government.

“Let me once again, reassure Nigerians, that this administration will not abandon them to their fate in the face of this existential challenge caused by banditry.

 “We are taking delivery of military equipment to improve the capacity of our security forces to effectively deal with this issue.

“Our military is also deploying advanced technology to enhance surveillance and related operations to locate and crush these criminals and enemies of our common humanity.

“This administration will not tolerate this state of affairs where criminals deprive the people of their means of livelihoods and turn them into beggars and refugees.

“The bandits are living in a fool’s paradise if they believe that they can’t be crushed. The criminals cannot be lucky always; they will ultimately meet their Waterloo.

“Evil cannot triumph over good no matter how long it takes.”
