President Muhammadu Buhari has expressed sadness and regret over the latest bandits attack in Kaduna State that destroyed many lives and left some injured.
A statement credited to Garba Shehu, the Senior Special Assistant to the President
on media and publicity in March 2, 2020, the President stated that:
“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.”
The President noted that his government will not be discouraged to stop the attacks with the military power.
“This administration would not be blackmailed by criminals to abandon the current military operations against them.
President Buhari promised 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 President, while expressing deep commiserations to the victims of this heinous attack in Kaduna State, sent a strong warning to the bandits:
“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.”
