In tackling insecurity across the country, President Muhammadu Buhari has reportedly ordered the nation’s armed forces for a major military operation in Niger State on bandits and remnants of Boko Haram terrorists fleeing theatres of war in the Northwestern and Northeastern parts of the country.
This was reportedly disclosed by the SSA to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, in a statement he signed on Sunday.
The statement read, “In a directive to the Defense Headquarters a few days ago, the Commander-in-Chief of the nation’s armed forces asked the military to respond robustly to the cases of killings and kidnappings in the state and to give effect to the strategic objectives through the use of force.”
The statement also noted, “The Federal Government is willing to strengthen support and cooperation with all the states. I believe that with the full cooperation of the citizens, we will surely overcome this problem.”
