Buhari explains why banditry is on the rise
Nigerian Ruler, Muhammadu Buhari has condemned the latest bandit attack in Kaduna state, which led to many deaths, saying that the bandits are killing innocent people because of the military offensive against them.
According to a statement issued by Garba Shehu, Senior Special Assistant to the Ruler (Media & Publicity), in Abuja on Monday, the ruler was deeply saddened over the attack and regretted that several people were killed and many left injured.
“From reports received, it is obvious that these bandits are unleashing their fury and frustration on innocent people because of the ongoing military and police offensive against them in the Birnin Gwari and Kaduru forests,” it said.
The statement vowed that this administration would not be blackmailed by criminals to abandon the current military operations against them.
It said Buhari assured the people of Kaduna State and other parts of the country that this government would continue to deploy all available resources to fight these cold-hearted bandits with a view to bringing them to their knees.
“These criminals should make no mistake that they can establish a reign of terror on the people without feeling the full might of the government which was elected to protect the citizens,” the statement added.
The Ruler, while expressing profound commiserations to the victims of this heinous attack in Kaduna State, sent a strong warning to the killers:
“The criminals cannot be lucky always; we are determined to frustrate and defeat them, and no matter how long they run or where they hide, they would be smoked out and brought to justice,” the statement quoted him as saying.
