Muhammadu has called on security agencies and communities under threat of bandits’ attacks and kidnappings to be more vigilant and alert in the light of the latest incidents in Enugu, Zamfara, Adamawa, Katsina and Kaduna States.

A statement to DAILY POST by Garba Shehu, his Spokesman said Buhari was reacting to the recent reports of heightened acts of violence and kidnappings after a period of relative inactivity in different parts of the country.

The President observed that “in view of the unpredictability of the security situation, our security forces and the communities affected should be ever more alert because these murderous and remorseless criminals would take advantage of your complacency and strike again.”

According to the President, “the bandits should under no circumstances be allowed to hold the country to ransom on account of security loopholes which they seek to exploit to strike at their victims. The criminals always look for loopholes in our security system in order to remain in and active, but we shouldn’t give them the space to achieve this diabolical objective by pre-empting them.”

President Buhari added that “complacency is a hidden or unnoticed enemy that we shouldn’t take for granted because doing so could weaken our strategies.”

The President, however, noted that the affected communities also have a responsibility to help the security agencies with the critically important human intelligence in order to stop the bandits in their tracks.

According to the President, “the bandits maintain networks of informants among the communities they attack”, adding that “by identifying and reporting these informants to the authorities, it would be by far easier to foil the bandits before they reach their intended targets.”

Commending the security agencies for their dedication and sacrifice, President Buhari directed them to “redouble their efforts and make life uncomfortable for the bandits.”

“You should spare no effort in breaking the backbones of these savage mass killers and don’t hesitate to attack them with merciless intensity until they are crushed and ultimately defeated”, the President said.

Herdsmen shoot Gov. Ortom in Benue Samuel Ortom 1024x576 2

The Governor of Benue State, Samuel Ortom, has narrated how he narrowly escaped death after suspected herdsmen shot at him in his farm.

Ortom said he was shot while in his farm located along Makurdi – Naka road in Makurdi, Benue state capital.

The Governor, who spoke to journalists in Makurdi on Monday, reiterated his call for arrest and prosecution of the leadership of Meyitta Allah for allegedly instigating violence against farmers in the state.

The Gov. said, “I went to my farm last week and the herdsmen, who were coming back to Benue state in their numbers shot at me.”

Ortom further explained that it took the intervention of men of Operation Whirl Stroke who responded timely and rescued him before the herdsmen ran away.

The Governor expressed concern that herdsmen were allowed to carry sophisticated weapons more than security agencies.

He said that herdsmen were not coming for grazing, stressing “anti-open grazing prohibition law is still in and anyone who wants to do of animal husbandry must embrace ranching”.

Buhari orders airstrikes on bandits, kidnappers ff96935b muhammadu buhari on arise 7 696x522

Muhammadu has received assurances that with the harmattan dust gradually easing its hold on the skies, fighter aircrafts would this week join the efforts to provide effective air attacks against bandits, kidnappers and cattle rustlers that have been attacking remote communities around Dogon Gona forest in Niger State.

In a statement sent to DAILY POST on Sunday by Garba Shehu, the President, described the repeated attacks leading to the loss of several lives in the communities “as a disaster for the nation,”

He had authorized the deployment of air power to support troops and policemen sent to the “difficult terrain,” to counter the menace of the attackers operating in the forest area bordering Kaduna, Niger and Zamfara states.

The statement added that in line with this directive, the Nigerian Air is setting up refueling facilities at Minna, Niger State to support the aircraft operations, giving assurances that given the improved weather conditions, a major exercise to “visually acquire targets” and launch attacks will soon follow.

The Police Command in Niger has equally given assurances that the planned dedicated air raids to complement the police helicopter gunship operations remain the best approach given the lack of motorized roads in the areas constantly under attack.

President Buhari also commiserated with the government and people of Niger State following the attacks and the loss of lives that followed, and assured that victim communities in the state will not be abandoned by the rest of the country.
