FG Fully Capable Of Checking Banditry, Terrorism, Other Forms Of Violence – Presidency


Lilian Ogbonna (AGENDAWATCHDOG) – Nigeria’s military is capable of dealing with all challenges to the nation’s security, according to the presidency, which has assured Nigerians that the country’s armed forces were fully primed to put down the challenges of banditry, terrorism and other acts of violence.

Garba Shehu, the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media & Publicity, disclosed this via a signed statement, in which the government implored Nigerians to be patient with the government as the armed forces were working hard to ensure that all loopholes being exploited by violent groups to unleash mayhem on them were plugged.

According to Shehu, President Muhammadu Buhari, had approved a joint military and police operation, code named “Operation Accord”, which took off three weeks ago, to  flush out armed bandits from all the forests in Niger, Kaduna, Katsina, Zamfara and Sokoto States.

While sympathizing with the people of Katsna State, over their recent tragedies, he advised them to continue cooperating with the security forces who were working to keep them safe.
