The efforts being put in place to fight insurgency and banditry in the country by the current government Malam Garba Shehu said “enormous successes” are being recorded in the fight against terror across the country Speaking with BBC Pidgin on Saturday, Shehu said President Muhammadu Buhari has done worse to bandits than what anybody can think of – terrorists.
Garba Shehu, presidential aide on media and publicity, has declared that “enormous successes” are being recorded in the federal government’s dealing with bandits and terrorists. Shehu made this disclosure on Saturday morning, August 28, during an interview with BBC Pidgin which was monitored by Leakblast reporters.
According to him, the success recorded in the fight against terrorism, banditry and sundry crimes is being overlooked.
He added that efforts have been intensified to ensure that the Nigerian troops record rapid victory over arms-wielding criminals.
Buhari has done worse to bandits Justifying the current government’s efforts in the fight against crime and terrorism, Garba Shehu said President Muhammadu Buhari administration “has done to the arms-wielding bandits worse than being declared as terrorists.”
The presidential aide said Buhari’s shoot-at-sight order on AK-47-carrying bandits was not issued on the prescribed successionist group, the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB). Shehu said bandits are not being treated with kid gloves–the reason the Nigerian troops are “bombing locations, the military is there on the ground exchanging fire for fire.”
“What the Buhari administration has done to the arms-wielding bandits is worse than being declared as terrorists. There is a subsisting order by the President that any arms-wielding, AK-47 bandits should be shot on sight.
