Still retaining his service chiefs that have run out of ideas, Buhari tells bandits to surrender weapons or face disgraceful, violent ends

President Muhammadu Buhari has said that bandits, who have committed crimes against innocent citizens across the country, will not be spared.

In a statement on Saturday, the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media & Publicity, Garba Shehu, quoted Mr Buhari as saying so while meeting with Governor Aminu Masari of Katsina State at the State House on Thursday night.

According to the statement, the President warned bandits to surrender their weapons, or face “disgraceful and violent ends’’.

He, therefore, assured people and government of Katsina State of renewed efforts, and review of operations, to improve the security of lives and property in the state, and other parts of the country.

The President said more decisive military operations against bandits in Zamfara, Sokoto, Niger, Katsina and Kaduna States will be under taken.

President Buhari commiserated with Governor Masari over the loss of lives from attacks by bandits, which include District Head of Yantumaki, Atiku Maidabino, and APC Chairman in Batsari Local Government Council, Abdulhamid Sani Duburawa.

Many Nigerians are however of the view that for the country to effectively checkmate the rising cases of insecurity in the land, the current service chiefs who have run out of ideas should be fired, while fresh hands should be brought on board.
