President Muhammadu Buhari said he had ordered the police and Armed Forces to be ruthless with bandits asphyxiating the peace of the country.
The President made this closure during an interview with Arise Television on Thursday.
He said he had told the police and the military to treat bandits in the northern part of “the language they understand”.
“Problem in the north-west; you have people over there stealing each other’s cattle and burning each other’s villages. Like I said, we are going to treat them in the language they understand.
“We have given the police and the military the power to be ruthless. You watch it in a few weeks’ time there will be difference.
”Because we told them if we keep people away from their farms, we are going to starve. And the government can’t control the public.
“If you allow hunger, the government is going to be in trouble and we don’t want to be in trouble. We are already in enough trouble. So we warn them sooner than later you’ll see the difference,” he assured.
The President,Muhammadu Buhari has warned those promoting crime and insurrection in the country, noting that his administration will treat them in the ‘language they understand.’
He spoke last week Tuesday after meeting with the Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission, Mahmood Yakubu; and other electoral commissioners in Aso Villa, Abuja, over the series of attacks on INEC facilities especially in the South-Eastern part of the country.
