Following the presidential directive to security operatives by President Mohammadu Buhari, to shoot at sight criminals welding AK-47 rifles in any part of the country, many have showed their gratitude to the President for his boldness in giving such order.
He made the commendation while speaking to newsmen on Thursday in Markudi, the state capital.
According to him, “I wish to commend Mr President for his recent order against those bearing AK-47 rifles.
"This I am sure will reduce the high rate of criminality, banditry and militia herdsmen attacks on our farming communities,” he revealed.
It is nolonger news about how hoodlums have been terrorizing Benue and other states, especially in the northern part of the country.
The new directive is very imperative considering the fact that many are being killed in the country on a daily basis.
To many, the directive will resolve the security instability in Nigeria and restore the country to the path of rectitude.
This directive will go a long way in curbing the illegal bearing and use of firearms by criminally minded persons.
What do you think about the President's directive?
