The Presidency has expressed deep sadness and regret over the latest bandits attack in Kaduna State that killed several people and left many injured.
The Presidency in a statement issued by the Senior Special Assistant to President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, noted that from reports received, it is obvious that the bandits are unleashing their fury and frustration on innocent people because of the ongoing military and police offensive against them in the Birnin Gwari and Kaduru forests.
Shehu in the statement maintained that the Buhari administration will not be blackmailed by criminals to abandon the current military operations against them.
President Buhari assures the people of Kaduna State and other parts of the country that his government would continue to deploy all available resources to fight the bandits with a view to bringing them to their knees.
The President, while expressing profound commiserations to the
victims of the heinous attack in Kaduna State, sent a strong warning to
“The criminals cannot be lucky always; we are determined to frustrate and defeat them, and no matter how long they run or where they hide, they would be smoked out and brought to justice”.
