Buhari: Bandits shouldn’t think they can’t be crushed

The president, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retired), has warned the bandits against thinking they cannot be crushed.

This is how he said his regime will not abandon Nigerians to their fate in the face of the existential challenge caused by banditry.

Buhari said this from South Africa condemning the killing of 15 people by bandits in the Goronyo and Illela local government areas of Sokoto state.

The president’s senior special assistant for media and advertising, Garba Shehu, revealed this in a statement titled “President Buhari condemns the latest killing of 15 people by bandits in Sokoto state, sympathizes with the victim, urges the security forces to redouble their efforts ”.

Shehu quoted Buhari as saying that “this pointless and senseless violence against innocent people cannot go unpunished”.

The president said: “This persistent and unprovoked violence against unarmed civilians must be met with a fierce response from the government.

“Allow me once again to reassure Nigerians that this administration will not abandon them to their fate in the face of this existential challenge caused by banditry.”

According to the president, “We are taking delivery of military equipment to improve the ability of our security forces to effectively deal with this problem.

“Our military is also deploying advanced technologies to improve surveillance and related operations to detect and annihilate these criminals and enemies of our common humanity.

“This administration will not tolerate this state of affairs in which criminals deprive people of their livelihoods and turn them into beggars and refugees. Bandits live in fool’s paradise if they believe they can’t be crushed. Criminals can’t always be lucky; eventually they will meet their Waterloo. Evil cannot triumph over good, no matter how long it takes. “
