The Chief of Army Staff, Lieutenant General Farouk Yahaya, has said that the Nigerian Arny will treat bandits like terrorists.
Speaking during a familiarization visit to 31 Artillery Brigade and Tradoc Minna, Niger State, Yahaya added that the army will deal with criminals and bandits just like in a war.
“I commend them on the job they are doing they should be more resolute and more decisive in dealing with the criminals and we will engage bandits just like in a war. We kill them and bring their weapons. And that is what we will continue to do but there are challenges,” he stated.
Speaking on the purpose of his visit, Yahaya said, “the essence of the visit is to interact with the troops. To ginger them more to do better. The challenges across the nation have been enormous and we are doing our best. In a war like this, you can have surprises sometimes”
“There are challenges here and there and that’s why we are to address them. As acknowledged by many, there is much improvement as compared to the beginning we are continuing in that drive”.
Yahaya called for collaboration and support, saying, “These criminal elements are living with us and if we all join hands together, we will eliminate them. Now we are making progress we have improved results. The others (other security agencies) are already contributing with us in the area of information sharing”.
