The Commander-in-Chief of the armed forces of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, President Muhammadu Buhari has told bandits operating in the Northern region to prepare to meet their Maker, as their days are numbered.
Buhari, who reacted to the killing of over 30 persons in Goronyo town in Sokoto State on Sunday, October 17, by armed bandits said the clock of their ultimate destruction is already ticking and they will have no place to hide when the onslaught begins.
This was contained in a statement issued by Buhari's Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Mallam Garba Shehu on Monday. In the statement, the president expressed confidence that the ongoing battle against banditry and all forms of terrorism and violence which have plagued the Northern region, especially the Northeast will soon be a thing of the past.
According to him, the days of the bandits are numbered because the military capabilities of the country's armed forces are being boosted by the procurement and subsequent deployment of advanced weapons of warfare.
While extending his sympathy to the families of the victims of the attack on Goronyo town, Buhari urged Nigerians not to despair, vowing that his administration is determined more than ever to protect the country's citizens from criminals, murderous gangs that have no respect for the sanctity of life.
