Buhari To Katsina People: Protest On Street Won’t Help In War Against Bandits. 

President Muhammadu Buhari has cautioned the people of Katsina State against taking to the streets to protest on the frequent attacks by bandits.

The President reminded the people that such protest can distract the military operations.

He appealed to them “not to give up on the military who over the years, have a strong track record of quelling crises once given enough time.

“The major forests in North Western Nigeria have been identified as home to the bandits in the region. The operation will clear all these forests.”
In a statement today, June 16 by a presidential spokesman, Malam Garba Shehu, President Buhari assured Nigerians that the nation’s armed forces are fully capable of dealing with the challenges of banditry and terrorism, even as he he pleaded for more patience as the military take appropriate steps to block gaps being exploited to unleash mayhem on innocent citizens.
President Buhari, who has approved a joint military and police operation, specifically targeted at combing Niger, Kaduna, Katsina, Zamfara and Sokoto States to rid the areas of bandits, assured that surveillance will be improved, with more night vision aircrafts already deployed under “Operation Accord.”
The operation was launched three weeks ago.

“Nigeria’s military has displayed its capabilities in the past and will show it again by dealing with the current challenges.”
