The Minister of Defence, Bashir Magashi, has spoken about the security situation in the northwest and north central; both regions are affected by crimes related to banditry.

According to him, "we believe that the spate of which these things are happening in Zamfara State and north central is a source of concern to the government and all agencies responsible for the execution of the operations in the north central."

He said that bandits are doing whatever they like, making careless statements and constituting a nuisance, hence the need for urgency in dealing with them.

The defence minister said that, "Security as far as the country is concerned is the most important thing in this country and the commander in chief has emphasized this today."

He revealed that the president has directed that the security services find ways, tactics and style that can get the country out of her security challenges.
