“President Muhammadu Buhari proceeds to London, the United Kingdom, Tuesday, March 30, 2021, for a routine medical check-up,” Adesina had said.

Before leaving the country, the president met with service chiefs after which he directed them to fish out bandits, kidnappers, and their sponsors.

The president warned that the reign of terror unleashed on parts of the country by bandits and kidnappers is no longer acceptable.
