President Muhammadu Buhari has directed the military to hunt bandits and eliminate them wherever they find them.

A statement from Garba Shehu, presidential spokesman, quoted Buhari as giving the directive while addressing officers of the 17th Army Brigade and Nigerian Air Force 213 operational base in Katsina on Saturday.

There have been reports of deaths in recent months mostly as a result of banditry and attacks involving herdsmen and farmers.

The president charged the military to be more spontaneous in restoring peace to the country, particularly states troubled by bandits.

“As the commander-in-chief of the armed forces, I believe you are capable of doing it. I don’t think you should spare any bandit. Identify and eliminate them. Pursue them anywhere you can find them and eliminate them,” he said.

“Nigeria deserves peace. The rainy season is good and we are already achieving food security, but we need peace. The money saved from food importation will be used to purchase arms for operations.”

Buhari also assured the troops that the federal government will provide all the necessary support for restoration of peace in the country.

“We will give you all the right equipment so that you can deal with them with despatch. I appreciate all your efforts but you can do more. I don’t want any bandit spared,” he added.

“Please give my regards to your families. The earlier you finish with the bandits, the earlier you will return and stay with your families.”
